Internal business has been a lifelong goal that I have a passion to pursue. I have grown and experienced the opportunity to live in three areas in the Unites States, and also been given the unique opportunity to travel to Europe and Central America. My family has traveled the world and owned an international business. Given the privilege to attend school and study the international business major will offer me a vast amount of education on how to apply my education a positive, productive and successful career in this business area for the future. I desire to set the personal foundation to obtain the guidance and teaching necessary to make a significant achievement in our diverse and global society. As a student, employee, and daughter, I have had the good fortune to work on several teams consisting of diverse people in various settings.
I absolutely loved attending this school! The only reason I had to rank it 4 stars was because a lot of discipline was not carried through with, which resulted in some bad behavior and made me feel uncomfortable at some times. Also I feel that RHS should have invested in making the bathrooms and the classrooms cleaner and nicer before they focused on the front entrance of the decals hanging in the halls. Otherwise I really enjoy my time at Roswell, and I love to call it my high school.
