As a kid everyone always asks you, “So what do you wanna be when you grow up?” And unless you were one of those born prodigies who knew that because you liked to stack blocks you must be an architect one day, you probably answered with the typical “I don’t know” response. And for awhile that answer was acceptable because this so called “real world” seemed like a million years away. Growing up my response was the typical “I don’t know,” then senior year of high school was coming to an end and it was crunch time to decide on the profession I was going to take on for the rest of my life (wow what a big decision to put on the shoulders of an overly confident, extremely dramatic teenager). While looking through the majors available to me at Kent State University, I stumbled upon Advertising. I read some of the courses I would be required to take, decided it seemed like a good fit and submitted my application the next day. Luckily I fell in love with the business and I finally have an answer to the question we have all heard a million times, “What do you wanna be when you grow up?”

So since I’d taken the majority of my classes (with only having my senior year of college left) I decided I should get a taste of this “real world” I have heard so much about. I applied to many different agency and was lucky enough to get a call back from the world’s best advertising agency (according to our moms). I am officially a Brotern at Brokaw Inc. and I am so excited to learn and absorb all that I can in the next 10 weeks. Although I haven’t gotten to meet everyone yet, with it only being my first week and all, I can tell that this is an insanely talented group of people who like to have fun. Aside from having to wake up before the sun, this is going to be a browesome summer… stay tuned!
