Join us in welcoming Marisa Bingham to the Marketing Support Staff. Marisa is a Mass Communications and Public Relations major entering her junior year at Boston University and we’re delighted to have her on the team. With an engaging writing style, a proclivity for picking great reads, and a fondness for chocolate, she fits right in here at Millennium.

To learn more about Marisa, her love of marketing, and how she’d pass the time on a desert island, check out her interview below.

What drew you to Millennium Integrated Marketing

MB: I was originally drawn to Millennium Integrated Marketing for their emphasis on brand marketing. I learned that Millennium also specializes in content development, website design, and ROI measurement. I was eager to learn these new skills from their internship program.

What about marketing excites you?

MB: I love the idea of helping someone establish a brand, product, or service through innovation and creative thinking. Marketing allows you to work with many different people with many different perspectives. I want to be exposed to those diversities in order to develop new, unconventional strategies.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

MB: Ideally, I’d really like to be living in a southern city doing corporate PR. I’d also like to own a cat and, hopefully, frequent the gym a lot more than I do now.

Favorite hobby/thing to do when you’re not hitting the books?

MB: Besides singing really loudly in my car, I’m an actress on BUTV’s (and America’s longest-running college soap opera), Bay State.

What’s your favorite thing to do in New Hampshire?

MB: Hiking! Or anything outdoorsy. 

What’s your favorite movie?

MB: Legally Blonde (No shame.)

What’s your favorite book?

MB: The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

If you were stuck on a desert island, what’s the one album you’d want to have with you?

MB:Taylor Swift’s Red album (Again, no shame.) 

Favorite candy bar?

MB: Milky Way

Favorite cereal?

MB: I don’t eat cereal, but if I had to pick I’d go with Rice Krispy Treat cereal. It’s essentially a dessert in milk.

What color is the dress: white and gold or blue and black?

MB: DEFINITELY white and gold.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

MB: Bagels. 

If you could have dinner with one famous person, living or dead, who would it be and why?

MB: Jane Goodall! I used to be obsessed with her and her study of chimpanzees when I was little. I’ve read all of her books at least once. My life goal is to meet her!

Top three places in the world you’d like to visit?

MB:  The Pyramids in Egypt, Macchu Picchu in Peru, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Kenya 

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? Please explain.

MB: Hmm… I’d have to say 100 duck-sized horses only because I’m really short. I need the height advantage over my opponent, otherwise, I’d get trampled in a second.
