Johnson shared the following about her career plans: “I’ll be staying in Raleigh working with a small business. Imurj is a music venue/art gallery/creative space, and I will be the sales and community outreach manager. I did my marketing internship for Meredith at Imurj, and completed an economics research project for our Virtual CSA Day about the local music scene in Raleigh that equipped me with necessary knowledge for my position.”
