I am a Bryant University graduate, May 2015, majored in marketing with a minor in communication. I played for the women's rugby team for three years and I was the President of The Podium, Bryant's public speaking club. I have been a member since my freshman year, was the treasurer my junior year and president senior year.
I was born in Tokyo, Japan and lived there for one year. My parents, older brother and I then moved to Newtown, CT where we lived for two years. After we moved to Europe: south of England for two years and France for four years. We returned back to our same house in Newtown in August of 2002. I have been to 35 countries over five continents.
I have been a Girl Scout since 1st grade and I am a life time adult member. I completed my Gold Award project in the summer before entering Bryant and earned it on November 26, 2011. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a girl can earn. She has to complete 30 hours of leadership, 40 hours of career exploration, complete the 4Bs, and write a proposal before completing a 65 minimum hour project by herself.
During my summers between my college years I worked at Girl Scout Camp Candlewood as the Challenge Course assistant and as a camp counselor, I was a marketing intern at Hologic, Inc., I traveled to Australia and earned the bronze level of President's Volunteer Service Award (100+ hours).
Since my freshman year of high school to my senior in college I have recorded over 700 hours of community service/volunteer hours. I earned these hours by being a manager for my high school volleyball and basketball teams, 1 CAN Make(s) a Difference (a food drive I created in my town for my leadership hours but continued for 2 more years), working on my Gold Award, working at a Girl Scout office, Ben's Bells Project, Sandy Hook Promise, and other places around my town.
Each year, Bryant holds the Public Speaking Colloquium, a competition to see who is Bryant's best public speaker. Every year I have participated and have moved up each year. About 50 students compete in a three minute preliminary speech round and the top 6 continue on, with a 7th place alternative speaker announced. Freshman year- just participated, sophomore year- 7th-10th place, junior year- 7th place, senior year- top 6.
I'm looking for a job where I can learn and grow in a professional and personal way. I'm hoping to learn skills I can use to run my own business one day.
