I'm Katie, and I'm so excited to be sharing my experience as a Retail Merchandising student at the U throughout the year with all of you!
Let me start off with some quick background info about myself.
Hometown: Eau Claire, WI (go packers)
Year in School: Senior
Job: Student worker at the College of Design Student Services
Career Goal: Working as a buyer for Nordstrom
Hobbies: Drinking coffee first thing in the morning, beating my dad in our daughter/father tennis showdowns, eating Buncha Crunch at the movies, major league baseball games, quality time with my amazing older sisters, and busting out my best Beyonce moves.
Why I chose the U of M: To experience the big city culture, work towards my dream of working in the fashion industry, and to push myself out of my personal comfort zone.
Be sure to check back in with me throughout the year. I'll be blogging about internships, where to get the best burger on campus, making new friends, and everything in between!
