Career Field: Business

Hi! My name is Kat Collver and I’m a junior graduating a year early from Missouri Virtual Academy. This is my first year in virtual education and I love that it’s easier to manage than in-person instruction. I’m in the entrepreneurship and marketing career pathway which has helped me better understand my strengths and learn skills that will apply to a variety of professions. I joined the Student Advisory Council to help organize my career plans and to assist others in navigating their passions. My favorite subjects in school are English and social studies, especially when they involve world cultures or history. I’m very interested in East Asian culture, currently learning Japanese, and seeking career opportunities overseas. My desire to study and learn has helped shape me into who I am today and I couldn’t be happier.
