Before Beloit

My high school was very writing-focused, which prepared me well for the rigours of Beloit College.

I was a three sport athlete (soccer, basketball, and lacrosse) and a clarinet player and instructor for children with disabilities.

"Beloit gave me the opportunity to continue playing lacrosse and offered many extracurriculars that I was interested in. It was the full package.”

Year 1

I was granted the Marjorie Brown Leff Music Scholarship, which fueled me to continue to play clarinet in the Beloit College Wind Ensemble.

Took the time to get a feel for many different academic fields and interests until I found what I truly liked to do, and Beloit College is a perfect place for that.
 

Year 2

Joined Kappa Delta Sorority, Upsilon Chapter at Beloit College, and became Vice President of Community Service & Residential Assistant.

Became the Captain of Beloit College Women's Lacrosse.Fully declared both of my majors, Sociology and International Political Economy, at the end of my sophomore year.
 

Year 3

Studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark in the Fall, and received Janssen’s Award, which recognizes the best Junior female athlete at Beloit College.

Attended Econ Day in the Spring, and learned about different career paths through networking with alumni.
 

Year 4

I worked with professor Laura Grube on a demographic analysis project for Belmark Associates - a student-run, consulting and marketing firm. 

The more I did these kinds of projects (surveys, data analysis), the more I started to really enjoy research. I then interned at The House of Mercy Homeless Shelter as a part of the Duffy Program Partnership course through the Sociology department.

“The Duffy Internship helped me better understand the local community, learn in a professional setting, and grow as a student and worker. Carol Wickersham and my site supervisor were my support system and pushed me to learn everyday”

After Beloit

Accepted a job offer as a Research Analyst at Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC) in Madison, Wisconsin.

Learned about this opportunity from my advisor - professor Diep Phan, who thought I was a good fit because of the combination of my majors, Sociology and Economics. 

My job will be evaluating the effectiveness of business corporations that help underrepresented entrepreneurs (women, veterans, people of color) start their businesses and learn about the business world.

“The beauty of Beloit is that the professors are invested in your success [...] The involvement of professors was a very good resource for me, and ultimately helped me find my first job!”
