Biography Coming Soon!
Ms. Shay Bell
Howdy! My name is Shay Bell & I’m from The Woodlands,TX; which is about 30 miles north of Houston, Texas. I moved to Austin and became a student at Huston-Tillotson University during the fall of 2011. I’m a junior at the School of Business & Technology and my concentration of study is marketing.
I chose marketing because I believe entrepreneurship promotes self sufficiency and effective marketing strategies are an asset in the success of a company. After graduation, I desire to utilize my HT education—including my experience with my internship–to assist underrepresented people who have an interest in becoming entrepreneurs. On a personal note, my interest in marketing directly speaks to my goal to become a business owner. My education in marketing will allow me to identify my target market, advertise and formulate strategies to attract them to my product as well as retain them as customers. Currently 10 % of a company’s revenue is spent on marketing and 70% of companies have a chief marketing technologist. (Gartner,2013)
The OIPRA internship that is offered at HT will assist me with supplementing my goals by providing me with hands on experience in certain areas that are critical in marketing such as researching and planning.
In my free time I enjoy playing tennis, as one of my favorite athletes is Serena Williams.I also enjoy baking and exploring new and interesting vegan recipes and exploring Austin and challenging myself to attend popular events such as SXSW and ACL.
