Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose Daniels because of its programs’ emphasis on international studies. Working in marketing for a global brand, I see that challenges tend to arise when appealing to different markets around the world. I would love to learn more about other cultures and how they operate in business.

Pre-grad school experience

I’ve been working full time in the entertainment industry for the past three years specializing in ad sales and digital marketing.

Post-grad school goal

I would love to break into the HR sector at a company. I want to use my skills and my passion which is connecting, helping and communicating with people to bring forth and implement change internally. I want to use this opportunity to learn as much as possible about human resource management.


I moved to Colorado recently and I have been spending a lot of time rock climbing and hiking in my free time. I hiked my first 14er one month upon my arrival. My short-term goal is to have 10 14ers completed by end of 2021.
