"I’ve been exposed to way more of the business side than I ever would have imagined...I’ve dealt with invoices, looked at sales revenue data and budgets, worked with the school on policy and branding issues, and sat in on business meetings...my time on HCD (Hopkins Creative Design) so far has taught me an incredible amount about finance and everything surrounding it."
