March 3: Guest Alumni for the Annual BDIC Networking Event

I’m very pleased to have been invited to participate as one of 13 alumni at the 3rd Annual BDIC Alumni Networking Event for students at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. BDIC is the degree program I participated in as an undergraduate: the Bachelor’s Degree with Individual Concentration.

BDIC is the perfect option for students who — like me — are entrepreneurial and interdisciplinary in their mindset. Through the program, students work with an advisor to plan their own course of study and design their major.

I designed my major in “Communications & Anthropology” with a Minor in Geography. My program mixed classes in cultural anthropology and cultural geography with those in journalism, marketing and communications. I think my career path has demonstrated how well this program prepared me to do the work I love, and the work I am doing now.

A year ago, I enjoyed serving as a guest speaker (via Skype) for students in the BDIC program. I have always enjoyed inspiring students and others to pursue their dreams, however unusual their desired career path may appear to others.

One of the other participating alumni at this networking event is Senator Stan Rosenberg!
