I grew up in Port Washington, New York and attended an academically stimulating public school system. The bar was set high for me at a very young age by 2 older sisters who helped instill a positive work-ethic in my developing years. Growing up without cable and no videogames as a child led me to have extra time to focus on my academics and like any kid play sports and instruments and get involved with extra curriculars in my hometown. I contribute my early success on having a family that fostered my education and never rushing to finish a paper or cramming to study the night before, and meeting with teachers regularly during their scheduled office hours. Attending Cornell University was the best decision I have made yet to date. The environment in the hotel school was one of friendly competition, collaboration and team work. I’m proud to say I have found a career that I am passionate about and my education has given me a strong foundation to be successful and entrepreneurial in my job. My name is Brennan Spreitzer and this is my education story. I am striving to raise $300, the cost to support one student in PMP's summer enrichment program, please donate today!
