I am a graduate from the College of Saint Benedict where I studied for a degree in Global Business Leadership. During my time in university, I have not only focused on my studies in global business and gender studies, but sought after the universal human experience, traveling throughout Northern Europe and going as far as Yunnan, China to celebrate differences and connect through similarities.
I have also spent time at an internship in Copenhagen, Denmark to gain insight from both a cultural and business perspective in the finance industry. Through my internship with Schmitz Cargobull Finance, I had the opportunity to work with the Northern Europe countries on integrating work processes and opening communication. I found myself growing in independence, self-awareness, and confidence while embarking on the understanding of Scandinavian culture. My passion for Scandinavia led me to completing an undergraduate thesis on the nexus of history and culture in Denmark and Finland, exploring how they intersect to create an innovative ability. I was granted the All College Thesis Summer Fellowship from the College of Saint Benedict to return to Northern Europe to research my thesis during the summer of 2017.
With the help of a St. Ben´s and St. John´s education and the community around it, I was inspired to grasp the practical knowledge of the world and seek the global mindset. The intersectionality between philosophy, gender studies, and global business continues to expand my world view beyond a single-story narrative and into a truly globalized and connected world.
