A Little About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Lena, and I am a rising Marketing senior at San Jose State University. I am expecting to graduate in Spring 2021. I aspire to work in product marketing in the technology field, but I would love to get a chance to work in a growing company. My dream is to be part of creating a sustainable consumerism mindset while helping businesses grow in that environment. Currently, I am learning how to do embroideries. It is a work in progress!
