How did you find out about the Kemper program?

I found out about the Kemper Scholar Program through a friend who heard about it from a professor. My friend thought that I would be a good candidate.

Why did you want to participate?

The program looked like an amazing opportunity. I was very excited at the prospect of receiving mentorship and having the opportunity to intern at both a non-profit and a for-profit organization.

What do you hope to gain from the Kemper Scholar Program?

Through this program, I have learned a lot about myself and have grown into a professional individual. I have made amazing connections with my peers and through the network that Kemper provided. I have also gained immense knowledge about the insurance world and different aspects of the world of economics, business, and finance.

Where do you think this experience will take you after graduating from Lake Forest College?

I have interned this past summer at Kemper Corporation as a financial analyst and, since then, have received a full-time job offer from the company to continue working there. Being a Kemper Scholar has truly changed my life for the better. It has opened my eyes to a completely different career path and has helped me evolve into the person that I am today.
