    What influenced your decision to choose the major/career path you did?  I really enjoy selling things; I'm good at it. I've always been one to want to have a sort of authority as well. I feel that I would be an asset to the business and real estate because I'm personable and work well with people. 

    What do you plan to do after graduating from Edison State?  Transfer my credits to a four-year college.

    Do you have any advice for incoming students?  If you're fresh out of high school, don't get lazy and take up all extra credit opportunities. If you're coming back to school after being out of school for awhile, like my mom, take advantage of public tutors. They're really helpful!
