JESSICA SCHREINDORFER is 21 years old and finishing up her degree in Sociology and Business Management at Central Connecticut State University. Throughout her educational carrier she has changed majors many times. After taking a sociology class at a local community college she realized it was important to understand more about the people and the society we live in. She has found it very interesting to study capitalism and to connect that to her management classes where the focus is on making profit. She says, "finding my passion in these ideas and issues has driven me to be a stronger student and a more active member of society".
