Personal Introduction:

As a first-year student of the Schmidthorst College of Business, I am specializing in marketing. When I am provided the opportunity, I am quick to help those who need it. On a daily basis, I work to be a source of guidance for those who seek it and to respect those around me.

In my free time, I am practicing my saxophone, or watching/playing sports such as baseball, basketball, or football. I have been a Cleveland sports fan for all of my life, despite the consistent disappointments. I enjoy attending and participating in performances locally to appreciate the diverse selection of music in today’s age. Additionally, I enjoy having critical discussions about thought processes and innovative ideas that would develop the world.

Following my BGSU experience, I intend to seek an administrative position for a company that involves music and serves as a benefactor to any community.

To describe the significant influence the Schmidthorst College of Business has had on me, I would use the word “Active.” As a business and music dual major, I find myself actively drawing connections between the works of a functional company and the opportunities an aspiring musician could be presented. Not only this, but the conversations and face-to-face interactions I have here are always progressing forward; never have I shared a conversation that was not without purpose. The Schmidthorst College of Business has proven to me the importance of these conversations and how they can transcend to real-world interaction.
