"Everyday, I get to work with some of the biggest brands to help them connect with consumers. It's so interesting to learn about their businesses and help them position themselves in the marketplace to drive sales. Being at Snapchat, a lot of the work I do is creatively driven. I get to work on a lot of larger marketing campaigns like Super Bowl and help brands determine how to best bring that campaign to life on Snapchat. It's so fulfilling working at a company that I believe in. When I was at SJMC I never thought I would end up in Advertising, but looking back at my experiences on and off campus - I know I am right where I should be! Whenever I have any doubts about the impact I am making, I think about something a colleague once told me, 'The work we are doing is keeping Snapchat free and accessible to everyone.' And, at least we can make Ads a little more fun!"
