Recognizable me: Hello! My name is Heidi, and I am going to be a junior at CU Boulder this fall. I am currently in Leeds majoring in Marketing and Accounting, and minoring in the TAM program. I was unsure about attending CU Boulder, but could not possibly be happier after my first two years. It turns out that Boulder is exactly where I belong!
Where I’m at: A couple of weeks ago, I left Colorado to travel to Thailand with my older sister. Thailand was an absolutely unforgettable experience, and I will foster memories from the trip for years to come. I was out of town until about two days ago, and since then I have decided to live in Boulder for the summer, since this is where all of my friends are.
As far as work is concerned, I just recently quit my internship as a Search Marketing Intern at a travel agency to pursue my undying interest in the fashion industry. So this summer I have started to work as a Sales Associate at the Nordstrom at Flatiron Crossing. So far, I absolutely love it! It has been such a wonderful experience for me to be in retail, surrounded by people that have common interests as myself. I have high hopes that this is the right path for me and that Nordstrom will provide me with endless opportunities to learn and grow with the company.
What I want: I am honestly very eager to get to work in this class. I have heard from several of my friends that this was one of the most helpful classes they took throughout their time at CU Boulder. At this time, I am most interested in learning how to make my LinkedIn profile look superb to recruiters. I think that at most, it is decent right now, but I will be sure to pay close attention to any advice and tips from Allison and apply them to my LinkedIn.
I also think that this class will overall be very beneficial to helping me improve my professional business writing. So far, I have not taken any writing specific courses other than WRTG 1150 during my freshman year. I thought I learned a lot in the 1150 course, so I cannot wait to see what all I will learn in this upper division course with a specific focus on business writing.
Where to find me: In my free time, you will most likely find me on the rooftop tennis courts at the CU Rec Center. Ever since my earliest memories, I have always loved to play tennis whenever I can. Unfortunately, during my senior year of high school, I started to experience severe pain in my knee and shoulder. I went to visit several doctors and physical therapists, hoping that at least one of them would say something different from the rest. But the consensus was that I had injuries that would only heal with lots of time and rest from tennis.
Since I am not able to play tennis as much as I would like to nowadays, I have had the opportunity to discover another huge passion of mine – travel. I have always been passionate about traveling wherever I can, whether that be a short road trip to the Grand Canyon or a 12-hour flight to Thailand, but with more free time on my hands, I have found myself coordinating mini weekend road trips with all my friends. I think that traveling is a great way for me to learn about the world I live in and interact with people from different areas to help learn about their way of life. No matter where I have traveled, I have yet to come across someone who has a nearly identical lifestyle as myself.
I am also very active on social media, sometimes a little bit too active. I love all my Pinterest boards, because they help me stay organized and I can always count on finding something new to cook or craft. On my Instagram, you will find all the main highlights that I consider to be the most important things in my life, such as friends, family, and obviously travel.
