Junior Business Administration major Brooke Hill has been immersing herself in a hands-on leadership experience during her time at Carolina. The Cornelius, NC native has traveled to China and the United Arab Emirates to study business and connect with executives, and has interned at General Electric Healthcare in Milwaukee in their finance management program. Here in Chapel Hill, she introduces like-minded students to the Kenan-Flagler Business School as an Undergraduate Business Ambassador. She has also tutored incoming students through the UNC Summer Bridge Program.
She considers her work as co-chair of UNC’s recent MLK Celebration, however, to be both her greatest challenge to date and the one that has had the biggest impact on her growth. Organized by UNC Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, the celebration began with a banquet this year on January 19. As the banquet’s organizer and coordinator in charge of the MLK High School Scholarship process, Brooke was one of the student leaders responsible for ensuring that the celebration’s many elements came together into a successful whole.
“I stepped into this position as a first-semester sophomore,” she says. “Event planning is hard, and, like all positions in the workforce, experience teaches you a lot. I am truly honored to attend a university where the faculty and staff trust a student to handle such an amazing event.”
This summer, Brooke will be interning with Google in Ann Arbor, MI in its Department of Small to Medium Business sales. She will be putting the communication, administration, and networking skills she has developed during her university career to confront new challenges as a member of its sales team. She admits that her long-term goals keep changing, but only because there is always more for her to learn. She hopes to continue studying business administration at the graduate level, and to work with children in elementary schools and hospitals.
