Favorite M+D project and why?

The True@TheU campaign! True@TheU started as a concept and has eventually turned into a campaign advocating for mental health awareness. This campaign is planning on spreading to other Universities besides the University of Iowa and addresses a subject many of us are afraid to talk about! Because I'm getting a certificate in Public Health, I thoroughly enjoyed applying tactics I learned in my classes and making a difference in students' lives on campus. The campaign is planning to launch in Fall 2016 and I'm excited to see everything come together!

What I've learned from my experience at M+D

There is a long list of everything I have learned during my time at M+D, and it keeps getting longer! Some of the best things I've learned at M+D is to never be afraid to share your opinions, hard work pays off and organization is key.

Plans after graduation

Start working for a company that establishes public health awareness and allows me to travel across the globe!
