"I enjoy being a part of a community where I get to experience all parts of campus, whether it’s playing alto saxophone in the marching band or connecting with females at the forefront of business at Women in Business club meetings. As a member of the Women in Business club, I had opportunities to practice networking and attend workshops to build my resume. With the skills I learned, I was able to network with a guest speaker, and as a result, gained an internship in the marketing department at the Rose Bowl."
