Howdy! My name is Brooke Kinser and I am a freshman here at A&M. I am in the Business Honors program with an interest in Marketing. My hometown is Plano, TX, near Dallas, where I live with my parents and older sister.
I am very excited to be allowed the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica and learn about sustainability! My sister went last year and absolutely loved it. I have never been to Costa Rica, but it has been on my bucket list for a while. I can’t wait to experience the tropical landscape and try the native foods. I also love coffee, and Costa Rica has some of the best in the world.
Business sustainability really interests me for a few reasons. First off, being in Mays, business is obviously my passion and what I want to do! I am a firm believer that we need to take care of this planet and its resources so that future generations can thrive. I promote sustainable habits in my everyday life, like turning off the lights, recycling, and not taking forever to shower. However, I would love to see sustainability on a large scale and what solutions the business world can offer.
I look forward to the pre-departure meetings and getting to know my peers I will be traveling with! Again, thank you for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
