“Once I arrived at UConn, I began to take marketing courses and realized there was an entire side of my creative potential that I was not tapping into. I decided to pursue a Graphic Design minor, which has aided me in adopting a literacy different than most marketing students. I view strategy from an artistic angle, which I then pair with analytical skills derived from my business classes.
I’m currently working as a merchandising intern at Banana Republic HQ, and can with certain say that my involvement with the Marketing department at UConn has fully equipped me for this role; boosting my affinity for conceptual planning and honing my technical skills. I love you, School of Business!”
