Where do you go to school, and what do you Study?

I go to Baylor University in Waco and I am studying Marketing and Management. My college experience has basically been an episode of Fixer Upper.

What projects, jobs or hobbies are you pursuing in school?
As a marketing major, I get to work on a lot of projects, which I love because it allows me to be in charge. I also nanny part-time and like to travel around Texas.

What type of work are you most excited to try this summer?
I’m looking forward to gaining agency experience, help wherever I can, and absorbing all of the talent in the office. I’m hoping to learn more about project management, try my hand at some copywriting, and observe the design process.

Hamilton Mixtape.

Nike or Adidas? Or other!? Why?
Adidas, because my favorite childhood shoes are finally cool again.
