Marketing and strategic communications student at the University of Kansas, class of 2024
My name is Emma Frieze, and I am a sophomore at the University of Kansas studying marketing and strategic communications. I live for communicating with others and enjoy approaching creative and analytical projects with a strategic mindset.
I am Creative. Driven. Inspired.
Creative. I have always been a communicator and a creator. From scribbling poems in notebooks to producing news articles and briefs, I have always felt compelled to write. I grew up as a performer in theatre and dance, which has fine-tuned my artistic skills that I now apply in areas such as graphic design. Social media outreach is also one of my top interests, and I aspire to develop my skills as a brand strategist.
Driven. I plan to graduate in December 2024 from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Science in business and a Bachelor of Science in journalism. I am also a University Honors Program student, a National Merit Scholar/Chancellors Club Scholar, and a member of the KU Business Leadership Program and Jack Dicus Business Honors Program. In addition to my studies, I serve the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force of the KU Undergraduate Business Council, and I am a member of KU’s advertising initiative The Agency.
Inspired. What inspires me to create and strategize is the powerful human insight that comes from effective communication. I am always curious to learn more about people and the world around me and eager to apply new insights to my work.
