About Me
My name is Chandler Sipes and though I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I hate the rain. I am a rising junior at the University of Washington studying Communications. I am working towards obtaining my Sales certificate and a minor in Entrepreneurship through the Foster School. I love fashion and plan to work in merchandising for a major fashion retailer, such as Nordstrom, my current workplace, after school. I enjoy all day breakfast, organizing my closet, and E! Network.

Where in the world are you off to and what will you be studying?
I will be spending Summer A-term in Shanghai, China with the Foster School of Business. This program is focused on immersing ourselves into the world of international business both through the classroom and real world experiences. This is my first time overseas and I cannot wait to expand my knowledge on both Asian culture and how business is conducted abroad.

What are you most excited about?
I am excited to actively learn about international business by engaging with companies and businessmen and women in China, as well as the other students in my program. An opportunity as hands on as this is hard to come by—let the exploration of this vivacious city begin!
