I know I promised you writing samples and here they are. They tell you that I know how to write with clear, consumer-focused objectives in mind, etc. But I think the real proof is in the pudding. You want someone with not only the ability to write, but someone who can help you connect the dots to meet your goals.

I have three core beliefs:

1. Details, details, details

2. A more connected world = Better interpersonal understanding and a better global community

3. 

I know I’m young and that I have a lot to prove. And I know qualities like “smart” and “hard worker” are a dime a dozen. But I have a fierce drive to learn, a highly-adaptable voice, and a growth mindset. From moving to Asia on my own to learning a new skill, I’m always looking for ways to push myself to my limits. Strategy is about being thoughtful and intentional, knowing what works within a given space, and I’m most interested in using the intersection of form and function to elevate the Airbnb brand and navigate the ALSDKFASDLF

and I can offer strategic solutions to help grow Airbnb into the best product it can (Airbn)be.

 

THE VISION

Airbnb is facing a pivotal moment right now, and the decisions it makes going forward will determine what kind of company it is. In such a politically volatile climate, one in which consumer loyalty can change in a snap (or more accurately a #Boycott, a la Pepsi, United), it's important to keep values in mind when trying to engage with consumers.

Airbnb has already demonstrated its focus on inclusivity and acceptance, from its public commitment to house and support refugees, to its response to the viral Asian guest incident. The next step is to implement a program to really push Airbnb's brand forward as both a pioneer of the sharing economy and a tool for social connection.
