During a week of whirlwind Chapter visits, NINO staff had the opportunity to meet some incredible Nourish students. One of those students was Chandler Dunklin, a first-year student at Wake Forest University who has already plugged into the Wake Forest Nourish Chapter in a meaningful way. Here’s what he had to say about his experience with Nourish thus far!
Why are you interested in Nourish?
A few weeks after school started last fall I was looking for a campus organization to get involved with. There were a lot of options, but as soon as I saw a poster advertising Nourish I knew it was the best choice for me. Nourish combines my interest in business and love of traveling and puts them to use for a great cause.
What is one of your favorite memories of working with Nourish?
In the Fall we did a “Dorm Storm” to sell Krispy Kreme doughnuts for one of our ventures. We went to all the freshman dorms and pre-sold boxes of doughnuts to be delivered fresh at a later date. Not only was this a great business experience, it was also an awesome bonding experience for our new Nourish team who grew closer after the experience.
What are your career interests, and how does Nourish prepare you?
When I graduate, I am interested in pursuing a career in international finance. My time with Nourish has helped hone my business sense and given me leadership experiences that I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. In my first semester with Nourish I have not only been exposed to international problems but I have been challenged to fix them.
