"After I worked to the top at Tommie Media and pushed through internships along with the job search before graduation, I came to a hard decision when I had a number of job offers presented to me. At the time I was offered a position that wasn’t quite what I wanted, but a considerable amount of money more than another job I was offered that I wanted more. It was hard when money comes into play. That semester I was taking Dr. Kris Bunton’s Ethics capstone class, and I talked to her about my hard decision. I’ve looked up to Dr. Bunton since the first day I met her on Tommie Media orientation when I started my journalism career, and she helped me jump start my professional career with great words of advice to help me get on the right path: 'Make your decision and don’t look back.'"
