I joined an all-star gym where and continued to cheer competitively until my freshman year of college.

What are your career goals?
I want to become successful in the business field. My mom started at an entry level business position with a company that was fairly small and grew into a well-known corporation. I aspire to be like her so I guess you could say I want to follow in her footsteps.
