It’s not your credentials that set you apart from the rest of the people in the world, but your passion. I believe it is passion that sets me apart and is making me successful in all aspects of my life. This including school, my career, the clubs I lead, where I volunteer and when it comes to baking cupcakes. My name is Megan Siwik; I am a senior marketing and management major with a minor in entrepreneurship at Ohio Northern University. I wanted to go after these three aspects of business so I would be prepared to open my own bakery. Volunteering at the Cleveland Ronald McDonald House, five years ago, opened my eyes to how much I loved baking for a good cause. This allowed me to set my goals early and to work hard to achieve many of them before graduation. While at Ohio Northern I have been working toward a dual major, working two jobs, and leading American Marketing Association, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization and Sigma Iota Epsilon as president. I am also part of two mentoring programs: Ada Friends and for the Dicke College of Business. My involvement and leadership in these programs shows the passion I have for business and how far I will go to reach my goals. I will also do anything I can to become the best in my field of work and open my own cupcake bakery. Being a business counselor for the Community Economic Development Center will allow me to help turn other’s passions into their own true life successes.
