Welcome Marina, a soon to be senior at Academy of Holy Angels in NJ.
This summer I will spend two weeks in Spain to become fluent in Spanish (I’m already fluent in English, Greek, & French), then I’ll spend several weeks in Greece, and lastly I will have an internship at the Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce in New York City. I want to be successful. When I graduate college I hope to be in charge of an international business of a major fashion house. This job entails travelling to the stores of the fashion house in different countries and securing that the business is going well and all the proper ethics are followed for the country it is located. It is for this job that I have chosen to become fluent in so many languages. This is why I have taken a course at Boston University in Journalism and Marketing. I have also taken a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology in advertisement. Being in such close proximity to the city is such an advantage, there is always something going on for me. Whether it’s a presentation at the Learning Annex by Marie Claire’s editor in chief, like the one I attended last fall or working backstage at New York Fashion Week, like I did for Vassilios Kostetsos in his Fall 2010 show. In this day and age to get to the top education, connections, and experiences are your only way. Thus I take any opportunity even if it doesn’t have any direct link to my dream job, you never know. While doing all of these opportunities I’m also attending high school at one of New Jersey’s most rigorous all girls private schools, I’m captain of the Varsity soccer team, I’m treasurer for Habitat for Humanity, I’m event coordinator for Angels over Africa, I’m an Angel Ambassador (recognized representative of my school), I’m a loving daughter, I’m a teenage girl trying to have fun, and now I&m a Intern Queen High School Ambassador.
