This is my fifth year as an undergraduate student at Drake University; double majoring in business management and art studio painting (GPA: 3.82). I will graduate in May of 2015. I am a highly driven individual, and I take pride in the work that I do. I am passionate about my art, but I do not wish to rely on it financially. I am looking for a rewarding career that will appreciate both of my fields of study.
