Last year, I received the “Outstanding New Member” and “District Speech Contestant” awards.

The purpose of the Business Honors Student Association is to create a community within Fox School of Business’ Fox Honors program as well as develop its members’ professional skills. In addition to weekly professional development and networking events, the organization has service and social events that are often attended by alumni and corporate sponsors. As director of fundraising, I was responsible for running a book sale, tie sale, dodgeball tournament and five bake sales. In addition, I stocked and marketed our ongoing concessions sale. Throughout the semester, I collaborated with my co-director and oversaw a fundraising committee to help meet our end-of-the-year fundraising goals.

The Association for Information Systems is an organization that is dedicated to providing students interested in Management Information Systems with networking opportunities and practical skills. Temple University’s chapter is the founding chapter of this organization and received the highest honor, chapter of the year, in 2013.

I declared Management Information Systems as my major in the fall of 2014 so I am just starting to get involved. I am currently attending networking meetings and professional workshops. I am also involved in AIS’s TDAP, Technical Development Application Program, which teaches students technical skills like HTML, CSS and JavaScript through instruction and application of these skills toward the completion of a final project.
