#aboutmeLIVE with Author + Founder Jess Ekstrom

Want to know how you can make the most out of your college experience? Join us for the next #aboutmeLIVE with author and founder, Jess Ekstrom.

Jess is the founder of Headbands of Hope and author of The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl’s Guide to College. With Headbands of Hope, for every headband that’s sold, one is given to a child with cancer. Since 2012, Headbands of Hope has donated headbands to every children’s hospital in the United States.

In this #aboutmeLIVE, Jess will share with viewers how they can have a fabulous experience in college and on campus. We’ll talk internships (as an undergrad at North Carolina State she secured internships with Walt Disney Work and the Today Show); we’ll talk relationships on campus; and discuss how students can map out their college journey.

Join us on Thursday, October 8th at 6 PM ET for Jess’ #aboutmeLIVE event.
