Tell us a little about yourself!
I love learning about others and their goals in life, whether they be personal or career-related. I am currently a recruitment intern with a company that specializes in placements for the legal industry, and I have also worked in the journalism and publishing industries. I’m an aspiring writer who is working on a creative thesis for my bachelor’s degree, and I studied abroad my freshmen year of college in Paris.
What part of the campus ambassador program are you looking forward to most?
I’m excited to see how FindSpark events and seminars give confidence and inspiration to other NYU students as they try to tackle the job search and application process in New York City.
What do you love most about your school?
I love that NYU prides itself on being a global network with campuses around the world. My school’s emphasis on cross-cultural exchange allowed me to study abroad my freshman year in Paris and will allow me to study in London in the spring. I also love that NYU’s main campus is situated right in Manhattan with so many networking and internship opportunities for students.
What’s your favorite social network and why?
Facebook is my favorite social network because it allows me to stay in touch with my family and friends back home in California as well as with friends I made while studying abroad in Europe. I love being able to easily share personal events and moments in my life with close connections around the globe.
If you could hear anyone speak at a future Findspark event, who would it be?
If I could hear anyone speak at a FindSpark event, I would love to hear psychologist and author Meg Jay speak. Her TED Talk “30 is not the new 20” was very inspiring and motivating. She focuses on people in their twenties and discusses how utilizing these specific years can really impact your future career and values.
What’s one fun fact about you?
Every Wednesday an NYU photographer friend and I try a new, noteworthy food place in New York City and blog about our experience as well as our lives as two college students living in the city.
