On Friday, I was talking to the associate at a chocolate company. She was telling me how marketing and advertising works at her business.

Talk About THE Future…Barbara Jun

Talk About THE Future…Barbara Jun

One of the more impactful, but easiest ways that I think anyone can make a difference is to talk to someone who is younger about their future.

I recently read an article about Yale undergraduates. My friend sent it to me because she saw that this article pertained to me. It was basically about liberal minded people who wanted to go into non-profits, local businesses, or companies that make a difference internationally or nationally that is not concentrated in finance or consulting...

As a senior in High School I had no credentials that made me fit for that job… but I did have an internship experience!
