Hey everybody! Welcome back to another blog. This week, I have a couple things to go over: schoolwork, internship work and other fun stuff in between. I want to start off by wishing everybody a safe a happy Halloween weekend! Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.
Since my last blog update, I’ve remained busy with all the goings-on in my life. This week has been an extremely busy one.

Though this was a ‘choice assignment’ and I’m sure not everyone in the class chose to do two interviews, I think my conversations with these teachers were one of the most educational moments of this semester (more…)
The past couple of weeks have been a great learning experience. Through completing multiple presentations and listening to some great speakers, I have been able to a.) get better at something I am not too comfortable with (public speaking) and b.) listen to some professionals career paths.
For my class on leadership, we have been reading some very interesting articles the past couple of weeks. One that really stuck out to me was a Q and A with Jim Collins, who was a former professor at Stanford now turned author and speaker. Jim has studied and written two books about how leaders can make the organizations go from good to great and how (more…)
