I grew up in the Midwest and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to come out to the west coast for college. Similar to a lot of you out there, I graduated from college excited to start making some money, however not really sure how I was going to do that. I went on to try many different career paths in the past two years since graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing. The variety of marketing and sales jobs I have tried range from Enterprise Rent-a-car to selling car wax at gas stations on only commission.
After all my experiences I have found the industry I want to build my career in, yet have struggled to find a way into. BambooSK8 has given me a great opportunity to get my foot in the door of the action sports industry, while being apart of a company making a difference in the industry. The atmosphere and working environment is unlike any other I’ve been around, the fun and determined leaders who are great teachers and are always there to help. To be able to have peers in the internship program to team up with and learn from is a great asset.
One of the great experiences I have been apart of is representing BambooSK8 at a skateboarding contest called Battle on the Bay in Coronado. We helped sponsor by donating our 100% bamboo skateboard decks to give out as prizes. It was great to see all the young skaters excited about our bamboo decks!
