Hello everyone! I'm so glad you decided to show an interest in Ross and I'm excited to share my experience with you. Currently I am a freshman BBA looking to concentrate in either Finance, specifically Corporate Finance, or Consulting, with a main focus in the Function of Human Capital. I have always been passionate about advocating for the best possible result whether it's in myself, peers, or for different projects that I work on. I'm passionate about this because I want to be able to contribute to fostering an environment where people are able to thrive. As a result of this passion I've come to value mentorship so much because of not only how I'm able to learn so much from people with different perspectives than me or that are older, but also how I am able to give back in return to share my experiences and advise so that I can be a mentor to others instead of just being a mentee. This continuous collaboration and connection that I wanted is a huge reason why I chose to come to Michigan and specifically Ross. The community that I have developed here through the different clubs I've joined, especially the summer program I got the opportunity to participate in (Ross Summer Connection), has allowed me to challenge my knowledge, be more flexible in a variety of situations, and grow independently into a more professional version of myself.

Another reason I'm glad I chose to come to Michigan, is because of the extensive network and the unlimited opportunities at Ross that will open doors for you. As a freshman, I've already gotten the chance to speak with influential individuals that have nothing but words of encouragement and advice to give me as I continue my education, which is really helpful as I figure out more about what I'm passionate about.

If you have any questions feel free to reach out, I would love to share what I know with you to make you feel valued at the University of Michigan and Ross! GO BLUE!
