HCM: What drew you to Montclair State and how did you get involved in our Her Campus chapter?
HK: Montclair State was a great opportunity to have a fresh start and be in a place to meet different people. I like my hometown but I feel like I needed a new perspective to grow, and MSU gave me that. One of the first few people I met at MSU was a suitemate of mine, Hope. I found out that she was a part of Her Campus, and as an aspiring writer and content creator, it intrigued me because I saw it as another opportunity to make friends while working on my writing skills.
HCM: What aspect of your major excites you most, and how have you been working toward achieving a career in this field?
HK: Marketing is tied to social media, content creation, and the overall development of products. I didn’t think I would like it at first, but I realized it’s the best major for me considering how I love seeing plans of mine come to fruition. I love experiencing the beginning, middle and end of making something – and I don’t think I realized this after I joined HC.
HCM: What’s something you wish you knew as a Freshman?
HK: As a freshman, I wish I knew how to be confident. It’s something that a lot of people try to teach you, but it’s something that I realized through my own self-growth. As I became more confident through the ideas that I talked about with my friends, I eventually felt and looked confident.
HCM: Where do you aspire to be after graduation?
HK: Hopefully at any media company. I want to go towards a digital marketing path, and I’ve been looking at places like Spotify and Twitter. I think they would be great places to work one day.
HCM: What’s your favorite Her Campus memory, and how has being a member of our chapter been a rewarding experience for you?
HK: Going to college fashion week for the first time with my girl gang!! We all had a great time going around each station and it was a great opportunity to put more effort into my look that night.
HCM: When you’re not busy being a #HerCampusCollegiette, how do you enjoy your time off?
HK: I have my own blog that I’ve been working on! Hopefully, I can get to writing and developing more during winter break. I’m also really into music. I’ve been playing since high school and used to play trumpet and piano – it’s been a constant in my life :). I love discovering new music any time that I can… even when I go back to listening to the same album for 3 months straight.
Harmeen’s talents in the arts and business set her apart as a leader. These skills coupled with her eagerness to drive the success of our chapter make her a great team player. Working alongside Harmeen is always a positive experience because she is so down to earth. For this reason, I am confident that she will achieve her goals while serving as a source of inspiration to those around her. I’m excited to see how Harmeen will continue to help our chapter thrive in the upcoming months of the school year!
