I am passionate about:
Environmental sustainability in consumer products and building practices, international business, non-alcoholic cocktail mixology, and branding.
A little known fact about me is:
As an INTJ, I (allegedly) have the same personality type as some pretty fun fictional and real life individuals such as Sherlock Holmes and Nikola Tesla.

Social Media Assistant
Northern Illinois University
I am a senior business administration student at Northern Illinois University, where I also will be receiving a minor in marketing upon my graduation in May. I am currently looking for a full-time opportunity outside of Illinois for my post-graduation career.
On a more personal level, I am someone who enjoys approaching problems strategically and building a team to solve whatever problem is at hand. During meetings, I am most comfortable listening and digesting so that I can see through the face value of the problem and identify an original solution with a higher chance of success.
Thanks for the feedback, Alex! I think both of those starting ideas are great. I definitely agree that there is that bridge to gap to ensure that every community could be serviced and educated on using financial products, and that both of your ideas have the potential to do so. I'm currently looking over the research for this challenge to find some precedence of implementation of this kind of program with virtual resources as you mentioned, and I'll update the contribution as I find it.
Thanks, Shane! I'll definitely keep updating the idea; I wanted to first introduce the contribution in its barebones form so as to not discourage any creative thinking that could be used to expand the concept in a direction that I may not have thought of yet.
