Giving Back Through Advertising Scholarships and More
It is my responsibility to share my resources to do what I can to help others. First, I try to give back through advertising scholarships and giving to various charities. I also believe, however, that it’s important to dedicate a lot of time to my community and those who I believe can make a positive difference in the future. That’s why I am a proud board member at both the Texas Tech University College of Media & Communications and at the Junior Achievement of Cincinnati.
Additionally, since 2012, I have been offering advertising scholarships to Texas Tech students who are on the school’s advertising team. The program is called NYC Adventure, and each recipient receives a trip to NYC to work with a reputable ad agency. These scholarships help students gain exposure to the big city, network with like-minded professionals, gain confidence, and learn what it takes to thrive in the ad industry.

This year, I have also launched BestEver Causes, a new philanthropy initiative with big goals in mind. Each month, we highlight a cause or charity we believe in and also donate at least $500 towards helping them further their mission.
The first charity we’ve featured is A Kid Again, which, for 18 years, has helped to restore a sense of normalcy for families that care for children with life-threatening illnesses. Oftentimes, these families are unprepared and unequipped to deal with their burdens. A Kid Again hosts year-round events to support these families and provide them with memories that will last a lifetime.
