Bobby Lima, M.F.A. '13
Bobby says his WSU degree has helped him open doors, adding that when people see you have a master's, they take you more seriously. He currently works for PR firm Joelle Frank NYC, and says, "Keeping in touch with people is extremely important. Knowing the right people and networking is key when it comes to the professional world. I love meeting people, and hearing their stories and similar WSU experiences. You never know who you will meet at a WSU alumni gathering."
Jessica Laus, '11
A development professional and community organizer, Jessica grew up on the east side of Detroit, earned a bachelor of arts from Wayne State, a master of science from the London School of Economics and currently lives in Newark, New Jersey. "I love the diversity of New York, the relative anonymity and the fact that there is always something to do, no matter your interests. And while I love New York, I'm always happy to come back to Newark, which reminds me of Detroit and where I'm happy to call home."
