Bold Points




I primarily manage my own online business on Etsy, a store selling seeds and promoting urban gardens and sustainbility efforts. We've made over $80k+ revenue through selling 23k+ seed and herb packet sales with 7k+ orders. I've also managed publicity (430k+ views, 140k+ visits). Outside of the business, I manage the Yearbook and work as an consultant intern for Bridging Distance – with it, I help lead the Future of Work research project through sourcing 60+ articles and interviewing leaders in business. At school, I am Class Treasurer, Vice President of Green Club, and Yearbook Editor-in-Chief.
