My Accomplishments
I started my own web design business at 16 years old. And I'm proud that since then, I have continuously grown, developed my skills, and given back to the business community at Ryerson with the things I've learned over the years.

Why Marketing?
I had originally wanted to pursue a career in marketing because I knew creativity was one of my strongest suits. But I also wanted to be people-facing. I thought marketing perfectly allows for a creative business career.

The Dream Job
Product Designer. It ties in all the things I couldn't decide between being when I'm older. Whereas I originally considered studying psychology, wanted (and successfully did) become a graphic designer, and knew I had business acumen, Product Design ties it all together. 

Wherever I do it, I want to ensure that I can still feel self-fulfilled, in an environment where I feel I am leading myself, instead of being managed, and that is constantly changing, allowing for personal growth.

My Impact
I want to come up with unique creative solutions to every problem. And I want to do it in a way that puts consumers first. This means breaking the stigma of that marketing is shady. It means ensuring that there will be no more "false" advertising.

The Challenge Getting Into The Industry
The system of applying for an internship is broken. Cliché, but it really is about "who you know" less "what you know." When you dedicate so much of your time to customizing a cover letter, resume, even portfolio, to each application's needs, its discouraging when you never hear anything back.

It truly is a humbling process.

"During this two-to-three-month period of pandemic life, living without friends or family in a small apartment in London, Ontario, I came to terms with an important realization. This passion project taught me there is always something I can build and create from scratch regardless of my living situation changing or getting derailed."

"Whether I am driving a car and listening to ads on the radio, seeing ads on billboards, or entertaining myself with television or social media, I see ads. I am fascinated by how brands convey their message to their target audience to delight their customers and achieve measurable business objectives."
