Hi Everyone, my name is Chloe Salvato and I’m from Westfield, NJ. I don’t necessarily hate science; in fact, I have a fond liking for it. Except, I do not have a math / science brain, which is why I ended up here. I am a freshman in the College of Communications, with an intended major in advertising. I have to receive a 3.3 GPA by my junior year so I definitely did not want to take physics, chemistry, or biology. But, I plan on minoring in nutrition which involves some science unfortunately. Furthermore, there are many different areas of concentration in advertising, which is partially why I am interested in it. I am hoping to get involved with either the entertainment or the food aspect of advertising. Originally I was in the DUS program, but after giving some thought as to what I enjoy, the two things that popped into my mind were pop culture and food/ eating healthy. But, I definitely do not want to become a TV show host, I want to be more “behind the scenes.” This is why I hope that advertising will be the right path for me. I also don’t want to become a chef, but I want to be mindful of how certain foods can affect the body. I also just love food in general. I have always been a huge foodie, except I didn’t start eating healthy and realizing how important it is until about 8 months ago. Once I changed my diet and started exercising, eating healthy became a true passion of mine and I now have a greater appreciation for food.

Basically, I chose this class because it’s based upon critical thinking, and rather than scientific math equations. Although, I didn’t do poorly in my math or science classes, but I certainly did struggle a lot. It took A LOT of time and effort for me to understand something so simple. I’d rather play on my strengths, rather than my weaknesses.
