            University of Massachusetts is like no other.What I love about the University is the way it challenges me by surrounding me with peers who have so much knowledge to share about the upcoming sales climate. The kids at this school are all exceptional in this singular quality. It was so exciting to work with women and men from all over the world. It showed me how much I have yet to see!
