How Ruckus Entrepreneurs Shaped My Life Plans

As a freshman, I had never even assumed I would go into business. I had always assumed I would work in technology or even architecture. However, after experiencing the operations of a small business, I concluded I would love to spend a lot of my life dedicating myself to making new connections and helping build a service or product from the ground up. Concordia has strongly shaped my post high school plans. I am grateful that I was able to participate and learn from Ruckus Entrepreneurs as it helped prepare me for my next stage in life through the skills taught by our amazing staff members.

I will be attending the University of Illinois at Chicago in order to pursue a marketing degree. I love going to the gym and playing the bass guitar. I plan to work in marketing and restore cars when I am older. Currently, I am looking for a marketing internship. I plan to learn the in’s and out’s of creating a business as I have a couple ideas for potential businesses in the future.

I will miss the staff members from Concordia the most as they have always provided a safe and uplifting environment for me to perform in. I used to be a lot more quiet and shy growing up, but after going to numerous selling events and speaking with customers on the phone directly, I learned how to improve my communication skills and become a lot more mature as a person. They have provided endless opportunities to better myself and the other teens in the program. It was such a pleasure to be able to work alongside them.
