    How I came to work on NPI and what I’ve learned: I found NPI when I was researching classes to add for my Fall 2013 quarter.  I was intrigued by what NPI had to offer because of its combination of both business practices and social work, two interests of mine.  This gave me a foundation to explore how my knowledge of business can help others in the community.

    While in NPI, I did just that.  I learned how to not only practically apply business strategies and policies but also to apply them in a very imperfect environment.  The challenges that NPI presented allowed me to learn how to think critically outside of perfect classroom scenarios.  It has given me great life tools and perspective to work with after my college experience.
