FELLOWSHIP REFLECTIONS

Major:  Economics and Business; Philosophy

Hometown: Storm Lake, IA

My fellowship experience
"The experience did show me the real world of real estate and development, which is ultimately what I wanted in the first place.  It required me to think 'outside the box' and gain skills in independent thinking. "
