Michael Tarapchak is an events intern for Simpler Media Group, as well as a senior at Penn State University. With some background in journalism, he took the challenge of creating stories based upon the business and operations industry. As the oldest of three, setting the right example for his siblings has always been his top priority. Hard work and determination, reaching the goals that seem unreachable is what he preaches. Whether it be athletics, academics, or professional life, striving to become even a tenth of a percent better adds fuel to the flames.
