Our collegiate interns have a passion for change
"I am a junior in college and I am interested in online marketing, product branding, communications and its impact on small business development. My interest in the field of marketing started when I was 12 years old. At the time, I was grappling between the fields of fashion design, industrial engineering, or communications. One day, I decided to start reading about business marketing. Once I started learning about marketing, I knew it was the perfect career for me. I plan to help small businesses, companies, startups, and nonprofits enhance their digital marketing."
