IMAC students have gone on to do great things. Here are some of their stories and comments.

Camille Bodden

My tertiary education began with aspirations of becoming a Biology teacher. As a 2009 IMAC scholarship recipient, I studied at the University of Colorado – Boulder for 2 years, as I pursued a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Mesmerized by the age of mountains, entranced by the endless pine forest with its curious plants and quiet steams; I felt that I had chosen the right path.

Everything changed after my first public speaking class as a Sophomore Biology student. Inspired by the composition of sentences, the meaning of words and the power of things well said, I took the plunge and changed majors as I began to pursue new dreams of working in Public Relations, Communications and Marketing.

I transferred to Stetson University for its excellent Communications program and the mandatory internship required for completing the program – this was both an opportunity for academic growth and professional development.  I continued studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Media Studies, with a minor in Marketing.

Upon Graduating from Stetson in May, I was recognized as 1 of 4 Outstanding Seniors in my major and I received Cum Laude honors. I had also been the Scholarship Officer for my Communication Honors Fraternity, Lambda Pi Eta. As I collected my diploma I felt a deep sense of gratitude. I thought of all the people that had propelled me and encouraged me to seize my dreams. Achieving that milestone would not have been possible without IMAC’s financial support and all of the IMAC members who encouraged me and pushed me to dream without limits while I pursued what I loved most.

I now work at Dart Enterprises Ltd. as a Communications Coordinator. I assist our Senior Manager of Corporate Communications by monitoring corporate sponsorships, maintaining and updating copy for our intranet and assisting with public relations for our scholarship programs.  I look forward to learning and growing with the company as I pursue a bright future in the field of organizational and corporate communications. If I had not been awarded the IMAC Scholarship, I would not have had the amazing opportunity I have today.
