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.
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
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?
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.
