B.A Film and Television Minor in Marketing, DePaul University, Chicago
August 2016 — June 2020

My experience at DePaul taught me various ways to be a good citizen, as well as how to professionally conduct myself. I learned a great deal of skills such as new softwares and digital media and marketing skills.

Study Abroad Program (Spain):

I spent two and a half weeks studying abroad in Barcelona and Madrid. This experience broadened my perspective on how we all live our lives and how we can improve in various aspects that I was previously not aware of. It was a humbling experience that gave me the ability to step out of my comfort zone and immerse myself in an entirely new place and culture.
