Why did you choose NC State and Poole College for your education?

I chose NC State because it was close to my hometown and had a great program for people who are undecided in what they want to pursue. I chose Poole College due to matching business administration with the results of the Strengths Inventory and MBTI assessments that I took freshman year.

How has your experience in your specific Poole program at NC State contributed to your professional achievements and successes so far?

My experience has connected me with professionals and mentors that have opened my eyes up to what is possible in the world through hard work and determination.

What do you enjoy most about your time in your Poole College of Management program?

I have enjoyed the mentors within the program and the individuals, both professionals and students that are invested in my success.

What advice do you have for prospective Poole students?

My advice is to continue to push yourself in regards to your education, your goals, and where you see yourself in life. I also advise to keep connections throughout your undergrad through meeting for coffee, sending an email, or connecting on LinkedIn. Those connections will be invaluable going forward when you need advice or recommendations.
