March Student Spotlight
Layne Livingston’s pitch for her car seat safety device earned her a spot in FastPitch and this month’s student spotlight.
Layne is a senior hospitality management major from Woodstock, Georgia. She was encouraged by her professor, Steve Stewart, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, to participate in the 3 Day Startup (3DS) program. “I had never considered myself an entrepreneur,” said Layne. “All I knew is that I had lots of ideas and motivation.” Those ideas and motivation paid off as she pitched to a small committee then to the larger group. She was surrounded by a very supportive and excited team who helped with research, customer discovery, pricing strategy and developing a prototype.
Layne will graduate in May but is confident that the My Guardian Angel team can handle developing and launching this exciting new product.
Layne is not an amateur when it comes to the stage. She was awarded second runner up at this year’s Miss Georgia Southern Pageant. Layne is also the chaplin for her sorority, Alpha Delta Chi, and volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Shortly after completing 3DS, Layne accepted an internship with Disney as part of its College Program. She will be a concierge in one of the company’s world famous resort hotels. Layne is very hopeful that the internship is just the beginning of a great career at Disney.
Congratulations, Layne! Keep up the great work!
