Major: Business Administration

My name is Charisse Balem!  I was born in Charlotte and raised in Concord, NC. My major is Marketing and I am interested in global and social media marketing. At my community partner, I work under the Director of Marketing and Communications. My career goals are to develop my networking and communication skills as well as get leadership experience. Volunteering and addressing important issues are both very important to me and I love how the Bonner Leaders program connects me to those things. I think that going out and serving the community is a great way to develop character and an understanding of your social environment; don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. My interests include art, music, language, and sociology! My favorite character is Spiderman. :-)
