My name is Alyssa McLeod '24, and I am a student athlete at St. Lawrence University, playing Division I ice hockey and studying Business in the Liberal Arts and Psychology. In relation to my major, I am very interested in start up businesses and learning about the different approaches to making a business grow successfully. I plan to receive a Masters degree in Leadership in the Liberal Arts and learn more about the ways I can also use leadership skills to further my professional career in the area of business. This summer I had the opportunity of being a member of the Heartfelt Dreams Foundation team in the area of Marketing and Communications, where I helped to organize and promote events, increased community outreach and executed administrative tasks. The skills I developed and the knowledge I gained from this experience will go on to benefit me in any future position.
