If you had asked me where I was going to college or what I was planning on doing with my life at the beginning of my high school senior year, I would have looked at you with a blank stare. I chose business, although the majority of my family works in healthcare. At first, I was unsure of my decision to major in business, but now I can tell you with confidence that I made the right choice. I am currently a senior in the Mitchell College of Business, majoring in Marketing, with a concentration in International Business.
