The first time I have heard of the Chick-fil-A Franchise Opportunity was in the discussion about good opportunities of starting business in the Facebook community. My interest in different business opportunities to bring a change to my life prompted me to check what Chick-fil-A Franchise could offer to a motivated individual committed to developing one’s own business and making it successful entrepreneurships experience. I have studied a list of the top-ranking global franchises, their profiles and the industries they operate in. The American Franchisee Association was also a helpful resource for learning more about franchise opportunities. Out of the one hundred companies and corporations listed, eight represent franchises that are

Two of my favorite trips that we, as a class have taken this semester were: the trip to Congress and the trip to the land of interest groups. During the trip to Congress, I had the privilege of better understanding how a bill becomes a law; I was asked to select a legislation and describe the purpose and history of this legislation. I remember picking out something that captured my attention: a legislation that stated, companies can now label genetically modified food as “natural,”
These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school. The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis.
“It taught me values”, “It taught me maturity”, “I’ve met and become friends with people in this program that I never would’ve associated with before”, “You gave us stuff we can use in the real world, like interviews, speaking skills, politics”, “Taught me self-respect and how to respect others”, “PT”, “It taught me about values and how to get along in life”, “It forces me to think about my future.” These quotes are from the Cadets of Somerset’s JROTC Program in Pennsylvania. The program needed “$65,000 re-occurring commitment by the April 12 (school board meeting) to begin the program again next year.” Rita Halverson, author of dailyamerican.com. This article is from April 08, 2011, meaning this website has been up for a rough four years and nine months. If this is what JROTC students thought about this program in 2011, approximately four years ago, imagine what those programs will look like in the future, say three or four more years. If this positive thinking continues, the experience will be much different, fresh, improved, and we will have a more positive impact, as a result.
Key Club has given me fantastic opportunities to serve my school and my community. Moreover, I am so happy I have the opportunity to help others find places to serve. At Jenks East Elementary, I help a third-grade teacher manufacture some of the arduous, yet necessary facets of education.
The Peace Corps offers a unique experience like no other that has made me rethink the whole out look of my life post-graduation. I 'm an entrepreneur at heart who seeks innovation to inspire people. I am graduating in December with my BA/BS in International Management from the University of Missouri.

For example, as the Morton High School Student Council President, I was in charge of organizing a student council seminar for many of the high schools in Central Illinois, where the executive director of VING and I were both the keynote speakers. After learning of this unique organization, several other students at my school applied for the charity, and one was even able to present a check to another student. Furthermore, over this past summer, I was offered the opportunity to travel to Chicago and intern at VING for a day (as a VINGtern). This was an exciting experience where I was able to work with their marketing team and provide input regarding their social media marketing strategies and target audiences. Since that visit, I have been contacted by VING requesting further input on developing marketing plans and
I choose Marketing as my major to help the business develop and become more well-known to the world. I decided on Seattle University as the next movement of my college life for many reasons. I find that Seattle University is located in the North of the United States and it has an outstanding environment of study. I have been living in the South area of the country
I was a mentor at the Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Wolf Pack Mentoring Program. In this program I was able to be a mentor to two first year Honors College students, Simonet and Samantha. This has being my most meaningful involvement in a student organization, because this was a program where I was able to make a positive impact in my peers’ life. When I started college I wished I would have had someone I could definitely count on to ask questions, study, or just talk about life as a college student, and with this program I was able to provide that to them. As a mentor I helped my mentees with choosing classes, professors, giving them advice on how to study for a test, or how to handle a service learning project.
In my last two years I was invited to observe the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce meetings. It was a great experience to go to the meeting to see how they planned the budget for the two of Zebulon. After the meeting as I was leaving I was approached by Mr. Craig Narron who offered me a summer internship at his Allstate agency which I did accept. The internship was a great experience. I had the opportunity work in a business related field seeing how a business runs from behind the scenes.
