- What are you most excited about when you think of PINC?
When I think of PINC I think of the endless possibilities and opportunities to help me grow professionally as a person and in my field of study. Not only am I looking forward to traveling, but I am also looking forward to expanding my educational knowledge, the experiences I’m going to have, and furthering myself to my full potential. I am excited that I have the opportunity to study abroad with a program I know I will never forget.
- Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
In 10 years I hope to be successful in my field of work that enables me to set examples for younger women. I hope to be financially stable, travel as often as I can, and live life to the fullest.
- What is one of your proudest accomplishments to date?
One of my proudest accomplishments to date would be that I am a college student and have been able to financially support myself by paying my college tuition independently. Furthermore, being the first generation to attend college in my family, and attending a program such as PINC is a dream to me. Also, I enjoy pushing my friends to their fullest potential, and I am happy to say I was able to make a difference by encouraging them to attend college.
- If you could sit and have coffee with one celebrity dead or alive who would it be?
If I could sit and have coffee with one celebrity it would be Ellen DeGeneres! Not only is she super funny, but is also very giving. I love her attitude and outlook on life. She is a positive person and puts the generous in DeGeneres! Now, if I could sit and have wine with a celebrity it would definitely be Zac Efron…reasons are obvious!
