Maverick Manzke Sponsorship
My name is Maverick Manzke and I am from Bloomington, Minnesota. I will be a sophomore at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and I am studying Finance and MIS. This is my first year being a part of VIA-1 and I’m excited to gain leadership experience as well as get to know everyone who is working so hard for the conference to be a success. In my free time, I like to play tennis and watch horror movies!
Name/Year/ Position. Is this your first-time being a VIA-1 director and/or attending the conference?
Maverick Manzke, Sophomore, Sponsorship Director. This is my first time both as a director and in attending the conference.
Why did you choose to take part in the planning process? Why this committee versus the other committees?
I chose to be a part of the planning process to see how a big conference such as VIA-1 is run, as well as befriending the great group of people working on it.
Being Sponsorship director is a great way to reach out to the local community, and to try and foster relations to benefit us for future VIA-1’s as well as other UVSA outings.
Who inspires you the most?
My Mom. She started from the bottom now she at the top and it motivates me a lot.
Most memorable experience or favorite memory of VIA-1 so far?
The fall staff retreat was the most memorable so far since it was the first time I met the other staff members, and connecting with them was awesome.
Director Question: Which committee director would you marry, impeach, and collaborate with and why?
Marry: Jon Lo. He’s very photogenic so he’d look good in our wedding photos.
Impeach: Sean. With him out of the picture I’m the tallest director bar none.
Collaborate: Andy. We are collaborating already so it just makes sense.
