Hello, my name is Malinalli Martinez and I am a Junior majoring in Retailing and Consumer Sciences with a minor in Fashion Retailing. This is my first semester as part of the Student Advisory Board for the Terry J. Lundgren Center (TJLC), and I am beyond excited! Even though I have only been at the University of Arizona for a very short time, the Retailing program and the TJLC have provided me with many amazing opportunities. I have grown professionally through real-world experiences such as professional development workshops, events with our corporate partners, and many networking opportunities. I believe our Retailing program and the TJLC offer unique experiences that will shape us to be future leaders of the retail world.
As soon as I attended the first event sponsored by the Student Advisory Board (SAB) and the TJLC, I knew I wanted to become a part of this amazing group! Every networking and partner event helps you grow as a retail student and expands your professional skills. Now that I am a part of SAB, I find it my duty to encourage students to take advantage of all the opportunities the center offers and to connect them with our remarkable corporate partners.
