"In the program, Schneider learned to work with and manage people in a business setting, film movies and take sharp and interesting photos. “Writing became one of my strongest skills, and design became one of my favorite creative outlets. Looking back, I really think I’m well equipped to take on a number of tasks and responsibilities in the communication world.”
