My advertising journey began when I visited the Coca-Cola Museum in Atlanta, GA. I was strolling around, having the time of my life when I walked into a small movie theatre where they had Coke commercials from all around the world playing on a loop. Some of them I didn’t even understand because of language barriers, but every single one gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. Anyone could have told you that my life changed that day. I immediately registered my major as Advertising & Branding and I never looked back. I have put in the work, I have cried, stressed and laughed throughout my career and there hasn’t been a single day in which I regretted this decision.
