Hi HIPsters! My name is Kendra Eckblad and I am a Senior at USC. I am currently studying Real Estate Development with minors in Architecture and Entrepreneurship and am really interested in learning about the intersection between these three fields.
Additionally, growing up in San Francisco, surrounded by amazing restaurants and sleek hotels, I have always had an innate passion for exploring new places and creating new experiences, which is what led me into the hospitality industry.
My dream is to combine my three passions: architecture, business, and hospitality to one day develop my own hotel. HIP is the perfect organization for me to be involved in on campus because it gives me the opportunity to round out my education and interests.
I am so glad to be a part of HIP and look forward to all the great events we have planned for this year!
