I believe that my humanities degree continues to be the lynchpin to a successful career. My passion for cross-cultural understanding, desire to learn and understand language, and the curiosity to dive deep and wide into topics comes directly from my time in my humanities classes. Humanities taught me that understanding intersectionality is crucial to being successful in the professional world.

The Religious Studies major has prepared me for the world by teaching me how to understand and interact with people from various cultures, backgrounds and religious patronage. When I was finishing my degree, I did research on the relationship between religion and disability, which showed how far society has come in the treatment of people with disabilities.

Having a background in humanities allows me to have a more profound connection with my clients and their constituencies. With demographics becoming much more diverse, having a degree in Spanish gave me the background and platform to provide sound client advice when marketing to the Latino community through TV, print, digital and radio communication channels.
