Monica Wilson

Madison, WIsconsin

My name is Monica Wilson and I am currently a student in the UW-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Wisconsin. I am an active student involved in several student organizations on campus. I am currently an active member of Alpha Chi Omega, PRSSA, and Bucky PR. In the past two years I have also been a part of DECA, Student Leadership Program, and Student Retail Association. These experiences confirmed my career aspirations and gave me opportunities for leadership.

I was born and raised in Plymouth, Minnesota. Growing up, my parents taught me to appreciate family, to work hard, and to have fun. From a young age, I’ve known that I want to go into advertising or marketing as a future career. In high school, I began collecting clippings of my favorite print ads, newspaper articles and books on the subject, which are now stockpiled in my room. Recently, I have discovered that I am passionate about the retail industry as well. In ten years, I can foresee myself working in the marketing department for a major U.S. retailer.
