I graduated from FHSU with a bachelor’s in Organizational Leadership in 2012 and got married shortly after that. Following three years working full time in food services and member services at the Hays Medical Center, I decided to go back to school and earn my MBA at FHSU and further my education and opportunities. At that time, I realized I had a dream to work and teach at a university some day, and a teaching assistantship position would give me a dynamic experience toward this goal. Some interests include traveling and learning about new cultures, playing sports and instruments, and “GoPro”ing my life. My experience in the China GTA program at FHSU has been, so far, proven to be an excellent decision and opportunity for me to grow my professional skills and experiences. I chose the MBA program because of the overall education and useful “hard skills” it would provide, its affordability and tuition assistance, and the opportunity to finish by degree in China–gaining further cultural engagement experience. The staff and faculty have already been assisting me in training and preparing, not only for my next year abroad, but for the next steps after graduation!
