WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE A CBE AMBASSADOR?
I love the CBE and the University of Idaho, and it has given me so much. I wanted to be able to share that passion. I wanted to help potential students discover what the CBE has for them, so they can learn to love it as much as I do.
WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCES?
My favorite experience has been IBC. It has been a lot of hard work, but I have learned more than I ever thought I would. We get to learn about all aspects of business, not just our major. We also learn how to work in teams, which is vital for any job I’ll have in the future. I’ve also made so many friends through the program.OTHER FAVORITE EXPERIENCES.
Some of my favorite experiences have been going on business trips. So far, through the CBE, I’ve been able to travel to New York, Seattle, Portland, and the Philippines. I have learned so much through these trips. I’ve toured businesses such as Nike and Starbucks, and I’ve been on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE NEW CBE STUDENTS?
Get involved early on. Join a club related to your major. Come to CBE events, like the picnic. Get to know your professors. You will enjoy college much more if you are involved.
