At an early age, I realized that my mother had high hopes for me. In the eyes of many, I was just another poor, black girl growing up on the south side of Chicago, but my mother allowed me to dream as big and vividly as I possibly could. She couldn’t give me everything, but she encouraged me and challenged me to be the honest and hardworking girl I am today.
Today, I am a proud student of the University of Illinois at Chicago pursuing a degree in Management. I chose Management because I possess leadership qualities that I can showcase in this field. I love to share my ideas with others and voicing my opinion, so I am studying a field that will allow me to work with other people and create innovative ideas. I am an adaptable performer. Therefore, I can see myself working in different areas in the world of commerce such as consulting, sales, or marketing.
By joining America Needs You (ANY), I will gain the fundamental skills needed to make my dreams a reality. I want to expand my knowledge to be better prepared for the world of business. ANY is giving me the encouragement and constructive criticism I need to be a competitive candidate in the business field. I am looking forward to ANY helping me to brand myself for my career path.
