I decided to go into advertising while working at Limited Too in High School. Every so often, a mother would approach me on her way out of the store, bags and daughter in tow. "Thank you so much for helping me pick out clothes for my daughter. She feels so much more confident and cute, and we appreciate your help!"
These experiences shaped both my advertising career and my overall life philosophy. I have come to realize how powerful the personal connection is when selling ones' self to a cause, whether it's for a product, a favor, or a goal to fulfill. My personal philosophy emphasizes the importance of strong interpersonal relationships, and I reflect that through my leadership roles, professional life, and social life.
