Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am a student at UC Riverside studying Business and will concentrate in Marketing. I chose Marketing because I really enjoy working with others and being creative with ideas. Also, I really like to figure out how people think and it intrigues me how Marketing has to deal with persuading people in order for them to buy your product. I am based in Riverside currently, but my hometown and where my family lives is Redwood Shores, California (in the Bay Area). I am more outgoing as I get comfortable, and I always try my hardest to have my work and myself recognized and approved of.

Interesting Factoid

I've been to 27 different countries, but the ones I listed are the countries that I remember and enjoyed a lot. I co-own a house (that I am currently living in for school) and I manage all the expenses and responsibilities.
