Hi! My name is Kristen Swanson, and I am a sophomore at Ithaca College majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications with a minor in Spanish. I am a creative, diligent, competitive individual with a passion for learning and thinking outside the box. Having just begun my college journey, I still have much to learn and experience. However, I am motivated to take advantage of all the resources and opportunities that are presented to me over the next few years. My hopes are to become experienced in the overall field of strategic communications, with a focus in advertising or public relations. I also aspire to be fluent in Spanish, knowledgeable about human behavior, and educated about cultures worldwide. My goals over the next three years include the Los Angeles internship program, summer internships in the Greater Boston area, study abroad in a Spanish speaking country, and participation in the National Student Advertising Competition.
