WHAT AM I GOOD AT? One of the things that makes me stand out from others is my ability to make connections. Whether it’s the old men at my job who come in every day or peers in my classes, I can make a connection with anyone. I can also remain very level headed in stressful situations, making me valuable in busy jobs and tense situations among people.
WHAT DO I VALUE? I value honesty and authenticity the most. People who aren’t afraid of what others think and do what makes them happy are the ones I gravitate toward and keep closest in my life. I hold value in having your own opinions and speaking up for things that matter, even if they might be “touchy subjects.” People who strive to learn and better themselves and others are valuable.
HOW DID I GET HERE? I got here, at OSU studying HR Management, in a very messy and unconventional, but also functional way. I am a first generation college student and it has been my goal since I can remember to go to college. My mother took a few business classes at our local college, but passed away young and didn’t get the education she wanted. My dad is a duck fan for sports and we don’t get along so naturally I chose his biggest rival. I live every day trying to be like my mother. I want to hold onto her legacy and help build mine with it. I want to do the things she wasn’t able to do.
WHERE AM I GOING? By staying on this career path, I’m going into HR management/ethics or consulting. I want a job where I can make things better and get paid well. I don’t hold money as a top value, but I did choose business to help get a career that pays well. My main focus is improving the lives of employees wherever I end up and help give them fairness at their job.
