2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

I really admire Adidas because they have been viewed as the number two in its category but has continually made and effort to combat this. I guess I love to root for the underdog, when looking at it terms of marketing. They have done an amazing job at capturing relevancy and social influence. 

       Twitch is an online live streaming platform where broadcasters can release and perform their content in real-time with viewer interaction live. I first found out of Twitch several years ago when I wanted to find a hobby that doesn't involve being the viewer but a content creator. Now as a live broadcaster, I consider Twitch as my second hobby, influencing many individuals around the world with my creative content and entertainment.

I appreciate Alibaba a great deal because of what it has done as far as connecting the business world. Serving as the middle man and allowing production of products that would otherwise be significantly more expensive, Alibaba provides hundreds of options. 

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. For my senior thesis project at The City College of New York. I was placed on a team to create a campaign for mental health.

The beginning. My entire team was opposed to the client because of what the client stood for. 

The middle. Being that the project was mandatory task in order to graduate, I urged the team to look for the best in the situation. After passionately conducting primary research this lead to me finding the key fact.

The End. The key fact directly led to the creative executions which was selected by the client to be distributed throughout CUNY campuses.

Reflection. I learned that challenging and asking the most of myself I can excel my own expectations.
