Like many young professionals, when I look to the future I am not yet sure what it holds. Throughout my university experience, I have been lucky enough to explore a variety of opportunities that have provided me with invaluable information about the kind of work that I am excited to do when I wake up in the morning and have taught me the skills needed to excel at this work: both of which have been my sense of direction as I enter the job market. In the classroom, I learned the basics of graphic design - how to analyze it, how to write about it, and how to create pieces of my own - which has now become a passion of mine. In my psychology classes, I became fascinated by how our minds interpret and are influenced by even the smallest of stimuli, and how to use this susceptibility to build healthy mental habits. In my health promotion internship, I learned that research design is an exciting process that involves critical thinking and creativity while leading a research project with the director of Health & Wellness. My previous experience in the private sector, non-profit, and academic environments has taught me the joys of organizing and managing a project that completes its goals before the set deadline and collaborating with co-workers, as well as how valuable the hiring process is to maintaining the intricate fabric of a company's culture. Although for the first time in my life I do not know what the future holds, I am excited at the prospect of growing professionally and continuing to learn with a company that values collaboration, creativity, and a strong work ethic.
