Where are you currently living? In Washington, DC... surprise!

What are you currently doing with your degree? I work for the former Acting Director of ICE under Obama, who developed his own private investigatory, compliance, due diligence and crisis management firm. As a former policy studies major - I find the opportunities to use Dale Carnegie principles every day.

How did participating in Immersion Week impact your career path? Immersion Week was crucial in helping me gain first hand exposure to specific career aspects that I did or did not like. This developed a more clear picture of what I envisioned for myself upon graduating and moving through next steps.

Any advice for potential Immersion Week participants/future SU graduates? Be open minded to change, rejection, and challenge. It's possible you may face all three, but assuring when you know you'll end up right where you are supposed to be.
