What activities have you been involved with on and off campus?

"After my first semester I joined IFSEA (International Food Service Executives Association.) Through IFSEA I was able to attend their International Conference in Orlando, Florida. I attended several seminars held by IFSEA leaders from around the world and was able to hear their professional advice about the industry. I also received relevant career training. The IFSEA conference allowed me to grow as a young professional and to network to gain professional references in the industry. I am also fortunate to have received several academic scholarships through IFSEA."
