Avon is a current freshman majoring in Marketing Management at CUNY Baruch College. She joined the team as a Marketing intern in March 2024, focusing on marketing campaigns, team engagement, campaign design, and more. Avon joined us as part of our ongoing commitment to nurturing young talent and providing valuable opportunities for professional growth.

Originally from the bustling city of Shanghai, China. Avon’s story is one of resilience and adaptation. Moving to New York at a young age, she embraced the challenges of a new culture and language with an open heart and a willingness to explore. Now, Avon’s love for marketing shines bright and we are excited to have them bring her unique perspective to the team. 

Avon’s dedications to learning and growing in a professional setting is evident, as they continuously seek to enhance both their hand and soft skills in the field of marketing and professional environment in general. 

It is simply exhilarating to immerse myself in a professional environment for the first time. Here, I am learning well beyond the confines of classroom materials, delving into the intricacies of real-world marketing challenges. The freedom to pitch in my ideas and perspectives feels profoundly fulfilling, as each contribution adds to the collective creativity of our team. The opportunity to meet one-on-one with industry professionals is simply incredible. These interactions not only provide invaluable insights, but also serve as inspiring reminders of the limitless possibilities that lie ahead in my marketing journey.
