My name is Taushja Brown. I am from Tulia, Texas and graduated from Tulia High School in 2017. While in high school I was fortunate enough to be able to do an Ogallala commons internship in my community. During that time in my life I had no clue what I wanted to do career wise for my future. The internship I took in high school helped me get a feel for both career paths I wanted to take at the time; child education and business. In high school I participated in many extracurricular activities and clubs and one of which was, The Business Professionals of America. Being apart of this particular club helped me realize that I wanted to pursue a degree in Business at West Texas A&M University.

My hobbies include reading and spending time with my family.

When I first started college I thought my passion was working with children. I worked at a daycare for a while and I realized that I wanted to help people in a different way. Although I am pursuing a degree in business I do not have much experience in the field but this internship will help to change that. For my internship I will be working at a bank in my hometown, I am excited about this opportunity because it will give me an insight on career that I will be able to obtain once I get my degree. Working at a bank will be very informative and interesting for me because I will be able to learn how a bank works and how to help people from a financial standpoint, whether that be helping someone with a loan or helping someone with their account balance. I am excited to be doing this internship and I can not wait to see how much I learn and grow by the end of this internship.
