How did SC4 help prepare you?
Prior to SC4, I was a high school grad who was unsure of what I wanted to do in terms of my career. I felt extremely overwhelmed not knowing what I was passionate about and how I would be able to apply myself to the world in order to succeed. I felt there were too many options and not enough time to decide. SC4 helped me narrow down what interests I had and find a career path in which I was going to flourish. I was able to gain a better understanding of my strengths, weaknesses and passions. I feel extremely thankful for my decision in going to SC4 and I still reflect on my time spent there, especially all the amazing professors I met along the way who really inspired me.
What do you like most about what you do professionally?
What I love most is that I’m able to love my career. Not many people are able to say they love their job or coworkers, so I feel very grateful that I’m able to be one of the lucky ones who really does. I’m able to truly be myself in my environment and do something that I’m passionate about each and every day. It’s all a dream!
Did you transfer on and earn other degrees? If so, what degrees and from where?
After SC4, I transferred to Oakland University. There, I earned my bachelor’s degree in management. After graduating from Oakland University, I decided to further my education at Central Michigan University and earned my MBA in project management.
