About Me

I am a freshman at Ohio State in the Media, Marketing, and Communication Scholars program from Rockville, Maryland. I’m am currently undecided but I am interested in Sports Management and working in the sports industry. I believe that the purpose of getting an education at a top notch university is to use your knowledge to help others who don’t have the same opportunity. My goal in college is to graduate with a degree that will enable me to do that. My most valuable work experience so far would be developing my own small lawn mowing business because it gave me insight into generating customers and managing a business, albeit very small.
