In our 5 Questions series, we will hear from those at the heart of the Bloch School – our faculty, staff, students and friends.
Why did you choose the Bloch School?
Three main things led me to the Bloch School: the faculty, the focus on innovation and the fact that it is an urban institution. I believe that all three of these things will be extremely helpful moving forward in my career. The faculty is tremendous in helping in the classroom and out. The innovation the school provides both with coursework and entrepreneurship is working to become a leader in the industry. Lastly, the fact that UMKC is an urban institution is beneficial when creating connections with those leaders in the business world.
How did you get involved in Enactus, and what are some of the rewards?
I became involved with Enactus because I wanted the opportunity to utilize entrepreneurial skills to help my community – and it has been more than I could have ever imagined. Not only am I making an impact on my community, but I am growing professionally and personally. I have had the opportunity to network more than ever before, my public speaking skills have grown, and I am implementing what I learned in the classroom into real life applications.
