Why did you decide to participate in the MC program?
To help offset college expenses and to grow as a leader by working as a supervisor at UPS.
What has been your biggest challenge as a MC participant and how did you overcome these challenges?
Time management is definitely the hardest challenge. I am a social butterfly and love to be involved, so it has been a struggle to find ways I can continue to engage in campus activities while making sure I stay on top of school and work responsibilities. I find keeping a planner and having a set sleep schedule helps with this a lot.
What advice do you have for prospective and current students in the MC program?
Make sure to communicate with your professors and your supervisors about your situation or if you need help! Most are very understanding and willing to work with you in times of need. Asking never hurts, only helps.

I majored in Management because I want to pursue a career in HR. I enjoy working with people and I would love to make a difference at the company I work for in the future.
What has been your involvement with co-curricular activities, co-ops or internships, volunteer experience, community service, undergraduate research, etc.?
I participated in UofL’s choir last semester, and I volunteer at my church, Sanctuary Church.
