Natalee Young Terkel enjoys her studies in Marketing and Computer Coding at the University of Pennsylvania, but she believes that reaching past the student community and into the world is important in her development into professional life. She travels and participates in new activities as much as she can to broaden her horizons and expand her life experience.
Her passion for rollerblading leads her to meet new people and her involvement in this community has helped her to expand past the university. She has friends from many areas of her life, including university, and she enjoys introducing them to each other to mix parts of her life together. She finds that some students are so focused on university that they don’t interact with those outside of the university community.
As a sociable person, she has always loved to interact with a range of people. She ensures that she tries new experiences often to keep her perspective fresh and to revitalize her existing passions. Alongside her studies she works as a bartender and pursues interests in photography and writing.
Natalee Young Terkel believes that broadening her horizons as a student will give her an advantage when it comes to finding a career. She has more opportunities from which to base her career choice, as well as a wide network of people from all walks of life who she can rely upon. She emphasizes the importance of leaving the university ‘bubble’ to try new things and meet new people.
