“While at Salem College, I have been able to take advantage of limitless opportunities which have prepared me for my future. Without networking with Salem alumnae, I would have never been able to land my internship at Sawtooth School of Visual Design. Thanks to the connections I have made at Salem, I will continue to power forward knocking down every barrier placed in front of me."
