Many internship programs were canceled due to Covid-19. Like many other students, my internship offer was rescinded. However, I was intent on making this time work for me. I used my network to secure projects for startups at varying stages. Although I am working in strategy and product management, the startup environment necessitates that we wear many hats!
Now a Trojan
With years of work experience that allowed me to learn of my personal strengths, I decided to pursue an MBA to accelerate my career path.
Although my initial intent behind pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science was to become a lawyer, I discovered that few lawyers are entirely ethical. I then decided to pursue business because business has heavy influence in the capitalist system within the United States today.
“H&M’s incredibly cool sibling is readying for a major stateside expansion plan—and Cali will yet again reap the benefits.”
While working within H&M Group, I experienced three different promotions, each exposing my different strengths.
I aided in various store openings and was among the team to bring the COS brand to the US market.
I continuously analyzed sales figures and was hands-on with customer service to make sure the business grew.
Even prior to obtaining any managerial positions, I knew the importance of having a leadership presence.
Due to an interest in creating social equity, I majored in Political Science and minored in Sustainability in pursuance of my Bachelor of Arts degree.
