    Congratulations! This is a huge accomplishment that you should be very proud of. I think all college women, especially those in Marketing and Communications should look up to you and aspire to be just like you. I think we get scared thinking about the future and avoid believing that it is possible to be successful at such a young age. So many of us want to be young forever and coming out of college, we don't want to believe that we are actually “Adults” coming into the “Real world.” By doing this, we look for jobs but instead more college graduates should start believing in themselves and starting their own business if that's their goal in life. Clearly, it can be done at a young age!
