Growing up in the Greenville, South Carolina, area I had a lot of exposure to entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. I loved the idea of owning a small local business that would benefit the community that I live in. I chose to study marketing because I believe it is a great major to help me reach my goal of starting my own business one day. Through my minor in communications, I have developed an interest in writing and public relations, so I chose this internship in order to enhance these skills and to cultivate a strong portfolio. Apart from school, I love doing anything active and/or outdoors such as hiking, running, yoga or playing sports with my friends.
