Position title: Senior Class Communications Director
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Young is proud to be the first Badger in her family. She’s a student of the Wisconsin School of Business studying marketing with a certificate in graphic design, but she loves biology and English, too. Graduating a year early has pushed her to embrace every opportunity available. Armed with passions for web design/development and writing, Young has helped many nonprofit and student organizations build online presences of their own over the last three years. She also has been a teaching assistant and mentor for students who enter the business school through the direct admission process, and she finds solace in relating to those around her — she believes the human experience is meant to be shared. After graduation, Young will travel to remote Thailand for two months to work as a marketing intern at an elephant sanctuary, where she will help the burgeoning organization further their mission of humane treatment. When she returns, she hopes to work for a company whose passions match her own. It is her ultimate goal to use her communication skills to improve the lives of humans and animals alike — and to never stop learning.
