What degree(s) are you earning? What do you plan on doing after graduation? 

I am getting a bachelors in Marketing. Right now I have a marketing internship with Compass Group, however, I am on the way to have a really big interview with Coca Cola, so I’m hoping I earn a full time position with them!!

What organizations were you involved in? 

I was involved in Phi Mu Fraternity. I was the treasurer! I also was a part of the UNCC choir and opera!

Favorite spot on campus and why? 

My favorite spot on campus is the botanical garden, because it is so relaxing. Whenever I felt overwhelmed with school, I would go in there to have some peace of mind. I was taken to a safe place whenever I walked through the garden. 

What has been your favorite memory at UNC Charlotte?

My favorite memory at UNC Charlotte was figuring out what I truly wanted to do. I have attended 3 total colleges, and out of all of them I felt the most true to myself at UNC Charlotte. I would have never knew what I wanted to pursue without the help of my business school. I will always be grateful for their help through my college career.

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career? 

Oh man, what a question. I have learned so many lessons during my 5 years in college. However, the most valuable lesson I have ever learned from all of my schools is that I need to do whatever makes me happy. I will always carry that lesson with me through life.

Emily, you are just a bundle of JOY! You are so full of energy and enthusiasm, it's contagious!! Congrats on making it to the finish line! I know you're going to enjoy life, wherever it takes you! All my best!
