What is your proudest marketing communications moment?
My proudest marketing communications moment is being offered a full-time marketing job in art and design higher education following graduation. I felt so... accomplished. I worked for six years to get to where I am today, and it feels so good! I also went to the Reed College for my undergrad degree in journalism, and when I graduated back in May 2020, I was scared to start the job search. The societal pressures made me feel like I needed to find a job the second I graduated. I'm thankful to the IMC community because this program gave me the time, guidance, and confidence to not be intimidated by the job search, and to keep fighting until I found my dream job. 
What is your superlative?
Most likely to be famous on social media! ;)
