Which groups/sorority/organization are you currently affiliated with?
I am an active sister of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority Inc. Spring 2016 class. Besides that, I am a dancer in “Fuego” multicultural dance group. I am currently sending in my application to ALPHA, which is an organization for Latino business students that helps student network as well as find job opportunities for after graduation.
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
I see myself living in New York City with a job that I love hopefully working for Google as a marketing developer. Also, having my own family restaurant is something that my father has always dreamed of having and I want to help him achieve his dreams. I want to set a positive image for my community and make minorities fight for their dreams and aspirations. It is important to give back.
What are some of your bucket list items/places?
My bucket list is to finally visit the motherland (Mexico). It is surprising that I will be going to Europe before I go and visit my native roots. I have always feared going to Mexico because of the amount of violence currently occurring, so I do not make much time to go. I would also love to see Paris and Rome.
What is one of your proudest accomplishments to date?
My proudest accomplishments to date would be receiving the news that I may be able to graduate with a double major in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Also, having the ability to work with my previous internship Mesirow Financial for many years and getting recommended to work for other companies based on my work ethics.
If you could sit and have coffee with one celebrity dead or alive who would it be?
Chance the Rapper, because he is just so amazing and I love what he is about. He is doing it on his own without a record label and not following the rules but still being very successful, plus he is very cute!
