David Magnotta - University of Florida

For David, retail means opportunity. "When people find out that I am an accounting major, they are immediately surprised by my attendance at retail recruiting events,” he wrote in his scholarship essay. “But there is no other industry that will provide me the same opportunities or an environment where I feel as comfortable." Attracted to the industry’s fast-paced environment, David knows retail is not only what you see in a store, and plans to do big business behind the aisles.
