Hello everyone! I'm so glad you decided to show an interest in Ross and I'm excited to share my experiences with you. Currently I am a Senior BBA concentrating in Management Organizations and Human Resources with a minor in Philosophy. 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 a lot  because of how I'm able to learn so much from people with different perspectives and how I am able to give back in return, to share my experiences and advice so that I can be a mentor to others and not just a mentee. This continuous collaboration and connection here at Ross  is a huge reason why I chose to come to Michigan. The community that I have developed here through the different clubs I've joined and the summer program I had 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 due to  the extensive network and the unlimited opportunities at Ross that will open doors for you. I've had amazing opportunities to speak with influential individuals that had nothing but words of encouragement and advice to give me as I continue my education and start my career. This has been vital for me as I pursue my passions and find new ones too!

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