  • Why did you choose Zealous Good for the summer? I first heard of Zealous Good when I was flipping through the companies at a startup fair at NU. I researched ZG and was highly interested in the mission. I saw many startups at the fair that had a mediocre idea and just wished to start a company. ZG had a concrete mission and it was clear that there was a need for it. After talking with Brittany, I knew that I wanted to get involved. I wished to apply my skills to a worthy company that was doing good for the community. I also wanted to make an impact over the summer rather than rotting away in a corporate office, and a startup is a perfect place to affect change while gaining skills. 
  • Tell us a joke! What’s green and has wheels? Grass, I lied about the wheels.
