"The best thing about communication is the freedom to explore multiple disciplines. Because of my minor in business and courses such as film and literature, I found my calling in writing. I am actively pursuing positions as a copywriter in Boston. Finding yourself and your passion is extremely rewarding as a communication major because your possibilities are endless."
