After graduating from the University of Washington, I am heading to University of Virginia to complete the Global Master Program in International Commerce and International Strategic Management. I will spend the next year in Charlottesville, Guangzhou and Barcelona before hopping off to London the year after to complete Jewelry Design and Gemology certifications.
My plan in a few years afterwards is to work in either international fine jewelry companies or in luxury brand management positions. Further down the road (think 10 years time...), I probably see myself in managing my family’s jewelry stores in Asia while partnering and working with gemstone and jewelry firms in Europe.
I believe that the Germanics major has provided me an excellent focus in language and culture in Germany/Switzerland/Austria, which will be useful for me when I get to do business in Europe or even in other regions of the world. The skills and help I received from professors here are valuable for me in getting to where I want to go in the near and far future.
