What are your thoughts on the Birmingham-
Southern Business Program?
I began college as a dance major on the
pre-physical therapy track, but I knew
that business was the major for me after
I took BA 201 Foundations of Business
Thought my sophomore year. My business
professors have taught me how to think
with a business mind, helped me find
rewarding internships, and facilitated
networking opportunities such as lunches
with leaders in my fields of interest. The business department is continuing
to grow, and I have to admit that I am a little jealous of the new opportunities
available to incoming business majors.
What experiences have particularly prepared you for the business world?
My internship with the program services division of the Make-A-Wish
Foundation was a great experience. This internship tested and improved my
communication skills as I helped plan “wish trips” for terminally ill children
and their families. The opportunity to intern with Kelly Cummings of Spindle
Photography in Homewood, Alabama, was another highlight of my college

What are your future plans?

nonprofit agency or a communications firm has always appealed to me. I
loved my internship with Make-A-Wish, and I have started looking at non-
profit jobs. I am currently interning for Cummings Creative Group to gain
valuable work experience in communications.
