Senior Farewell: Kayleigh DeMace
They really aren’t lying when they tell you your college years fly by. The past four years went by in a blur, and I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way…and that’s a good thing, I promise. I’ve had the best, most fun-filled years of my life in my time at King’s. I’m really going to miss this place.
I’ve met the most amazing people in my time here and have made some really great friends. The professors are all such wonderful people who I plan to keep in touch with after I graduate. I’ve also been involved in some great organizations and events here, including The Crown (of course) and KC Mini THON.
Mini THON is something that I hope to see King’s continue with and encourage you all to get involved it. It was incredible to see the people who we were helping with the money that we raised, and it was just another opportunity to get to meet more of the amazing people who go to this college.
If you’re going to take one piece of advice from me or anyone else out there, it should be to get involved while you are in college. Challenge yourself and experience new things every chance that you get. You’re at your prime! Take advantage of that, and of every opportunity and event that this school has to offer you. If I didn’t challenge myself to get involved with this paper or to stay up for 12 hours for children with pediatric cancer I would not be where I am or who I am today, getting ready for life after college.
As for entering the “real world,” I’ll be working full time at eBay enterprise, which is an affiliate marketing company. I’ve been interning there for over a year now and am beyond excited to start full-time. The people there have become an extension of my family and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else at this point in my life. They’ll be sending me for training in California over the summer, and I’ll be traveling to meet clients a few times before the fall. I’ll also be going for my MBA at Wilkes University starting next semester, which is really exciting for me.
I’m extremely excited to begin this next chapter of my life, and I’m so thankful to King’s for the foundation that they’ve helped me establish. I’m ready to build on what I’ve learned here and continue to grow as a person and professional. I wish you all the best of luck in your future. Take advantage of every minute. These are the best years of your life and they pass too quickly.
Have a great summer!
