CIF COM 0220 GraduateFassoldQ: What was your favorite subject in high school?
Show choir, which was actually a class. If not that, probably math.

Q: Do you remember your most influential high school class or teacher?
Mr. Matt Rund. He was both my speech coach and my teacher and just always had students’ needs in mind instead of focusing on getting out of there.

Q: What do you miss about high school?
I miss having a real schedule because you see the same people every day that you grew up with.

Q: Where do you want to go with business administration?
  I’d love to work in a nonprofit aspect, preferably something related to Riley Hospital or Riley Children’s Foundation.

Q: How did you get interested in nonprofits?
I joined DM freshman year and working toward helping (Riley) children really sparked my interest in helping children outside of the classroom.

Q: What are your next steps?
I’m looking for internships now to do over the summer. Honestly, I’m just trying to get through. Junior year sucks. We are getting ready for DM 2018, which will be in February.

Q: Do you have any advice for people going into college?
Study early. Get there before finals week because it goes by so quick. Get involved in college because you’re not going to find your niche or your home or all of your friends in your classes.
