Recently I was able to volunteer for the BCITMA, the Marketing Association affiliated with BCIT. We did some promotional work downtown Vancouver for the TOR Generation Chair by Knoll. My job was to recruit people to do a photo shoot for the company, enticing them with the potential to win an $800 prize.
This past summer, I was fortunate to be able to travel to Thailand with some of my friends. The experience and memories I gained there was something I would never forget.
At first I experienced a major culture shock; different foods, customs, mannerisms. During the 5 weeks I spent in Asia I gained a true appreciation for the culture.
The first four weeks of my trip I traveled to the islands of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, and Koh Phi Phi. Koh Phi Phi quickly became the favorite thus far. The island comes with much history, having been hit by a devastating tsunami in 2004. It was amazing to see how the island was slowly recovering. Some wreckage was still visible but the people of the island, including volunteers from all over the world, have managed to recreate the beauty of the island previous to 2004.
The island culture was wonderful. We were able to go snorkeling, climb jumping, hiking, sailing, and shop, which was an experience in itself.
From Koh Phi Phi, we took a two day trip to Laos. The bus ride was anything but safe or comfortable, but we got there in one piece, which is what matters.
Our trip ended on another island in Thailand called Koh Chang. It was the right place to end our trip, as the island was anything but busy. Laying on the beach all day reading was the relaxing end we were looking forward too.
Traveling to Asia was the most rewarding experience I have endured so far, and would absolutely love to go back. Its motivated me to continue my travels, not only to Asia, but all over the world. Hopefully my next destination will be Europe!
For this assignment, I created a presentation using MS PowerPoint, in which I chose to use an article about Lululemon to analyze their marketing strategies.
The presentation is based on Lululemon’s controversial marketing tactics, listing just a few occurrences that have raised eyebrows in the past.
In this assignment, I made a business model suited for the car dealership industry. The assignment entailed creating a simple business model using MS Excel 2007 and will practice differentiating between absolute and relative cell references. Using MS Excel formulas allows users to be able to change input values to successfully generate output values without having to do calculations by hand.
One of our team assignments for our Organizational Behaviour class was to construct a Team Charter. Our charter is a contract which outlines our goals, rules, assignments, meeting procedures, and individual member roles for the group, as agreed upon within the group. Our charter earned us 100% for the assignment.
The “Introduction to Facebook” project showcases our teams ability to effectively use MS Word 2007, by creating a report in a business style format. We included functions like adding a cover page, captions, sources, and inserting an index. To submit our project, we learned how to publish our e-book to one of the largest self-publishing sites, Lulu.com To view our e-book on Lulu, click here
In my first year marketing class, my team was assigned a case study based on RIM’s BlackBerry. Our focus centered on how to combat the rising competition that BlackBerry faces as an innovative smart-phone.
Through extensive research, my team contemplated few alternatives before coming to a solution. Our case study illustrates a marketing plan on how to implement this solution, SWOT analysis, alternatives, and our main problem.
For the past nine years of my life, I have been heavily involved in lacrosse. Its been my passion ever since I first stepped foot on the floor of the Port Coquitlam Arena.
As years progressed and I got older, I was able to become more involved with the PCMLA, the Port Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association. I found myself in every volunteer position, along with helping to coach younger teams and camps.
In 2005, I was asked to try out for the U-19 National Womens Lacrosse Team. Making it through to the second round, being only one of two BC players, I found myself beyond proud of my accomplishments.
