Hello! My name is Grace Beitter, but I also respond to Grey spider as it sounds similar to my full name! I’m a born and raised Dallas girl, and I’m a rising Junior at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville with a major in Marketing and Psychology. I’m very excited to intern with Agency Entourage for Summer 2019!
On the Hill
I chose to spend my college years calling the hogs on a bit of a whim. Originally, I couldn’t tell anyone why I wanted to go to Arkansas, I just knew it was where I was meant to be. I lacked any relationship to the university; all I knew was that I just wanted to get out of Texas. My answer to that question has evolved after two years in Fayetteville. The University of Arkansas has brought me all kinds of joy! A few things I enjoy include football games (although the Razorbacks aren’t doing too hot lately), hiking trips, plenty of hipster coffee shops and some of the best people I know. I also have a new found appreciation for Tex-Mex queso, rather than “cheese dip.”
Two of my favorite things to do in my free time are running and art. I was raised in a family of runners, and although I wasn’t super into the idea for a while, I eventually fell in love. My high school years were dominated by running with the Track and Field team, with whom I eventually became a captain. I continued my passion throughout college by running in a half marathon and a couple of fun-runs. My goal is to run a full marathon before I turn 30! Also, I’m a bit of an artist! I mainly work in charcoal, but I like to paint and do watercolors as well. I find it to be a great way to relax.
Somewhere in the Middle of the Ocean
One of the most valuable experiences a person can have (at least in my opinion) is to travel. Upon searching for a study abroad program that would satisfy my life-long wanderlust, I came across Semester at Sea. Through this program, I will have the opportunity to travel to over 11 different countries on about 4 different continents during my spring semester in 2020! Talk about a good start to the year! So, if you need me in 2020, I’ll probably be somewhere in the middle of the ocean.
