Grad Year: 2014
What made you choose your school? At first, my dream was to study Fashion Design and attend an art school. After being accepted into 7 design schools and choosing Philadelphia University, 3 semester's later I learned that Marketing and business was my true calling. I loved that Bryant was nationally ranked at 15th for top Northeast Schools in the US News College Reviews, and was a very well-known business school. Their job placement after graduation is also at 97%!
What activity makes you happy? I love the Her Campus club at Bryant! Currently as a Campus Correspondent for Bryant's chapter, we have become nationally ranked at a Top 12 chapter of of 300! My heart and soul goes into Her Campus Bryant because it is something that is truly empowering to college women, and provides a stress outlet like no other when the last thing a girl wants to think about is studying for the hundredth time in a semester.
What is your biggest pet peeve? My biggest pet peeve is snoring! I am such a light sleeper, so really any noises while I'm sleeping wakes me up. I guess that would make my pet peeve be myself for being such a light sleeper.
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I was a dancer for 10 years growing up.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? I love the TV show Revenge! It is my absolute favorite! The suspense and drama are addicting.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I would 100% go to Italy! It has always been a dream of mine, it looks beautiful and any pictures of the country have always caught my eye.
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I would love the power of invisibility. The thought of being anywhere at anytime seems thrilling to me.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would first and foremost pay my parents back for college, pay for my little sister's college tuition, and then invest the rest to grow my savings account, and to Breast Cancer Research.
What are your plans for after graduation? I would love a career in Media writing. Either working for a large magazine company, marketing or advertising company, or even a corporation.

Hometown: Austin, TX
Major: International Business
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I was homeschooled K-12, so my first day at Bryant was literally my first day of school, ever.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? I love a good story in any genre. Some favorites are The Little Prince, anything by Paulo Coelho, Ender's Game, and the Harry Potter series (yes, I am a nerd).
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? My current top three are Japan (I've never been to Asia and I've heard great things about Japan), Australia (it's just been on my list forever) and Spain (my dad lives there and I always love a chance to practice my Spanish).
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I think I'd want to fly, because I'd save so much money on plane tickets! Plus it would be amazing to see the world from that perspective.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I'd give $100K to good causes (i.e. micro-lending, clean water projects), $100K to my loved ones to help them realize dreams they might have put off for financial reasons, and I'd invest the rest.
What are your plans for after graduation? I'm hoping to work for a multinational consulting firm for the first few years after I graduate, then go back to school to get my MBA. Eventually I'd love to own my own business, be a best-selling author, and travel the world for work and pleasure.
What made you choose your school? I came for an overnight and the people seemed so tight-knit, the professors were engaging, and I heard so many wonderful things about the International Business program. Three years later, these are still three of my favorite things about my school.
What activity makes you happy? So many! Salsa dancing, curling up in bed with a good book, traveling, spending time with friends and family... The list goes on and on. :)
What is your biggest pet peeve? Repetitive noises (i.e. finger tapping), disrespectful people.
