How do you practice sustainability?
I think my biggest contribution to sustainability is my decision to go paperless. By making small lifestyle changes like using an iPad or laptop to take notes and using apps such as Venmo to exchange money instead of physical cash, you end up preserving a lot of trees in the long run. Another small, fun way I choose to be sustainable is by using biodegradable glitter at music festivals.
What are your future career aspirations?
I’m currently working on a degree in marketing with a minor in sociology at Auburn University. I love writing and putting a creative spin on things, therefore I would love to go into marketing. My ideal dream job is running a marketing firm targeted towards festivals and large events. I love interning for TO THE MARKET because they give me a lot of creative freedom, and that’s what I will look for when I begin my career after school.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
It’s hard to pick one inspiration when I am inspired by so many incredible people every day. I am inspired by my father because he is insanely smart yet so humble and he always keeps a level head. I am inspired by my mother because she is a creative force of energy and positivity who immediately puts a smile on anyone’s face. I am inspired by my grandfather because he is very disciplined and never loses sight of what truly matters. I am inspired by so many, I couldn’t choose a single person to be the most influential in my life and I am grateful for all of the people who drive me to be a better person.
Pick a song to describe yourself and explain why you chose it:
The song I chose is "My Little Corner of The World" by Yo La Tengo. My dad always played this song for me when I was younger and told me I was a dreamer. I think big dreams and aspirations are very important, and this song reminds me to never lose sight of my dreams even in the midst of struggle. I hope to share some glimmer of my little corner of the world with everyone I meet.
