Mara Willemin is a 17-year-old DeWitt High School
student who’d be pretty goal-oriented for a 40-year-old, let alone a 17-year-old. She takes college courses, is the
student government president and a member of National Honor Society
Willemin graduates in 2009 and has her sites set on getting a dance and political science degree from Michigan State University
or the University of Michigan
Over the summer, Willemin interned with Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero’s office. She’s very impressed with local female politicians and inspired by the influential women who are making a difference in the area.
This week, Mara will give Capital Gains readers a glimpse into the tech-savvy mind of Generation Y. Mara discusses why her generation is so addicted to electronic communication, what this means for businesses and how they can benefit from this addiction.
