Xiaowen Xu, or Mary as she prefers to be called, is a Daniels Pioneer who always keeps her head high and a smile on her face. Mary is a second year International MBA student who came to Denver from China in hopes of being able to learn more about various cultures and be able to gain an education that has no borders.

During her experience at Daniels, Mary has had the opportunity to go on Global Opportunity (GO) trips to China and Tanzania as well as a trip to meet Warren Buffet. Mary is the Vice President for the Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA), coordinates Daniels Coffee Breaks, as well as volunteers for many organizations.

Mary believes that students should strive to be engaged in whatever area that interests them while maintaining a good work-life balance and of course being optimistic.

Thanks Mary for spreading the cheer!
