"During my college experience I plan to take an internship with a real estate brokerage and an internship with a digital marketing agency to decide with path is for me or if I can incorporate both into the same career. I aspire to be a real estate agent by doing digital marketing on the side for the brokerage. Also, I plan to travel abroad during college and after college to learn more about other countries manage their businesses so I can find new ways to grow business here in the US.”
