Hometown: Boulder, Colorado
Amity has a true entrepreneurial spirit and is enthusiastically involved in everything Daniels. She is a key member of the Daniels Ambassador Team and joined the admission staff as a lead tour guide.
What is your best Daniels moment, experience or class?
It is a toss-up between From Idea to First Dollar Sale and Introduction to Business Communications. Stephen Haag and Diana Nguyen have pushed me beyond my limits and have been supportive and guiding forces throughout the time I have known them.
I love the structure of the Entrepreneurship minor here at DU and the unique opportunities that Haag and this department offer to students, especially the grinds and the variety of content associated with these courses. Professor Nguyen and the Business Communications class taught me how to be a better business communicator and public speaker, and that is something I know I will continue to use for many years to come.
Favorite movie, TV, or book?
Movie: The Blind Side. TV: The Fosters. Book: The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
Favorite quote, line or motto for life?
“Life is not easy. Don’t try and make it that way. It’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now, it won’t ever be. Do not fall into the entitlement trap of feeling you are a victim. You are not. Get over it and get on with it.” -Matthew Mcconaughey

Favorite internship, job, or volunteer experience?
I currently work part-time downtown at PINK/Victoria’s Secret, and I love working there and interacting with different people. I also love volunteering through my business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. My favorite volunteer experiences through them were Junior Achievement and Denver Rescue Mission. In summer 2019 I also had a full-time marketing and sales internship at Trace3.

I love to run, do yoga, and workout/be active!/p>
Best piece of advice for first year students?
Take advantage of all of the resources DU offers. Get to know your professors, peers within your major and academic advisors. I also highly recommend finding something you are passionate about here on campus—your niche, if you will—and putting your energy into the activities, classes and organizations on campus that you are most passionate about.
