I am very passionate about technology with regards to the digital world and staying up to date with the latest trend in today's society. We live in the age where everything is digitized. Tomorrow's big thing is already yesterday's news, so it is imperative to stay on track with society's demands and wants for any relevance of success in today's market. As I am fluent in Polish, I am passionate about learning in general as it is second nature to me. I enjoy learning new languages as well as others' cultures, and so forth. My undergraduate studies have enabled me to grasp the understanding and obvious importance of business criteria in modern industrial times. However, my graduate studies have taken the initial step and opened up a new perspective for such criteria to a level of infinite possibilities that can collaborate, integrate, and expand the business portion with that of digital media implementations and influence. A company’s success depends upon the ability of its staff to grasp a problem, evaluate the best way to solve it, and then work until the solution is in hand. This is precisely the process I followed all four years to graduate at Holy Cross. My collegiate education has given me the ability to think outside the box and see aspects from different vantage points. I am not afraid to suggest new ways to approach a task. This is one of the many characteristics I attained through a liberal arts education along with collegiate varsity athletics. My MSDM program has given me the necessary skills of audio, video, desktop publishing, and web design integration, and allowed me to take an initial step further of “thinking outside the box” to achieve success with the company’s goals. I believe nonetheless that my experiences on the field, in the classroom, and through worldly travels to my family’s native Poland and the likes of the African continent give me the ability to manage and communicate cross-culturally. Every opportunity enables growth.
