Who Am I
I consider myself to be just like any other 21 year old senior in college – I want to stay in school for as long as possible, learn as much as I can and have a dream to travel the world.
My current priorities are to stay healthy, watch movies, work, study and stay close to my family.
One of the main reasons I am here at the University of Colorado at Boulder is to be near my two little sisters (13 and 5). I want them to know I am here for them and to remember me vividly, not just as “my weird older sister that goes to college somewhere”.
What Do I Do
I am a Senior here at CU majoring in Finance and Operations Management. During the school year, I live in Boulder and travel to either Fort Collins or Highlands Ranch (where I grew up) during the weekends to see my family.
This summer I am living in an extended stay hotel in the DTC, with my boyfriend, working my tail off. I have had an internship at Project One Integrated Services since the summer of 2015, am taking two online classes and am studying for the GMAT. It may sound like a lot, but I absolutely love keeping myself active and busy.
The company I work for is an owner’s representative firm for all kinds of construction projects. Last summer, I worked as a Project Management Intern, and this summer I am a Marketing, Contracts and Project Management Intern.
I work mostly with tracking, data entry (of course), InDesign and excel – creating templates, marketing packages and employee resumes.
Why Am I Here
Obviously I am in this course for the requirement, but after reading the syllabus, schedule and various links for the course I am extremely excited. My main goals are to learn how to stand out and about online presence.
I have heard great things about this course and even after two days I can see why. Looking at the marketing packets I create for my internship, I can see that I will improve substantially at work by the end of this course.
This writing course is not just about writing essays regarding overly complicated prompts but what skills we need to succeed in the real world. What should be in my personal portfolio? What do I want colleagues and employers to see in my professional writing?
Where Can You Find Me
You can find me on Instagram posting selfies, my various adventures and the kittens I wish I could adopt. I am also usually painting something in my room, be it a piece of furniture or a canvas, hiking in the mountains or around Boulder, listening to music or at the movies.
My dad grew up as a movie kid. His first job was at the local movie theater as a concessions stand cashier, and know, after climbing the corporate ladder, he works as an executive for an advertising company for movie theaters across America. With the season pass I always make sure I have, I can guarantee you I will see every single movie that comes out to theaters. This is something I grew up doing and have learned to fully appreciate.
The same thing goes for my passion for the music industry. If it plays, I can tell you the song, album, artist and era it is from. I have been to more concerts than I can count on my hands and feet and love every second of it.
I am also a cheap traveler. You can find me taking cheap trips across North America with the left over money I made from the summer (if I haven’t already spent it on concert tickets). Some of quick trips I have taken on a budget include: New Orleans, Rapid City / Mount Rushmore, Cancun and Cabo San Lucas.
I hope you were able to see me through this blog post, and I am eager to learn more about you!
