“I have been doing graphic design since 8th grade and decided to do marketing because I wanted to try something new. I have always been interested in helping businesses grow. I have learned that graphic design and marketing go hand and hand, so I have used my experience in graphic design to help me thrive in the work environment.
My plan after high school is to attend the University of Georgia to major in marketing. Marketing is something that I enjoy and my position at Homestar helped me realize that.”
