β€œTo be a part of BECA, driven by its inspiring members and disruptive mission, leaves me no choice but to exert my very best effort.”

Mykel Broady

BECA Intern, Student

Mykel is a senior at the University of Nevada, Reno, dual-majoring in Marketing & Management with a minor in Business Analytics. Above all else, he embodies being a lifelong learner, constantly seeking new avenues to learn about himself and the world around him. Currently, he hosts his own podcast, uniting listeners from around the world to a mission of collective learning and sustained curiosity. On campus, he serves as President for the Black Business Student Association. In addition, he has worked closely with a Reno nonprofit, Black Wall Street, to empower local youth.

Although still open-minded on his path post-grad, it is evident that marketing is a likely possibility given his keen interest and great experience thus far. In particular, he served as a Corporate Marketing and Communications Intern for Pearson — a British multinational — during the summer of 2021. Through this, notable accomplishments included: launching a corporate blog, featuring on a Forbes.com article, and serving as a student spokesperson.

As graduation nears, Mykel is narrowing his options down while continuing to organize conversations with a wide range of professionals to develop an in-depth understanding of business and where he can best contribute. Whatever he chooses, he finds comfort knowing it will come through the lens of joy.
