Commercial Real Estate and Online Businessman

Major: Global Studies, Graduated 2017.

Quote: "I currently sell commercial real estate and am working on growing several online businesses. Global Studies has given me many skills that I use every day when relating to clients from different backgrounds. I love the variance of coursework that the major allows and the community gained from smaller class sizes. Upon graduation, I had difficulty finding my career path but the more things you try the more clear your path becomes. I once heard a Global Studies staff member discuss how, “Our unique thought is not our downfall but our strength” and feel that is true of Global Studies. No matter where you come from or what you want to do in your life, I think that Global Studies can aid in your way of thinking creatively. I wish you all the best of luck moving forward!
