Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose Daniels because when I started looking for schools to start my graduate degree, Daniels was the one that made me feel the most welcomed and engaged. Daniels offers so much in resources and organizations to be a part of that it has been a great way for me to meet so many inspiring students and faculty. As a student at Daniels, you are also exposed to the vast network of alumni which is great because you gain an in-depth perspective about the professions former alumni are in.

Pre-grad school experience

Before attending DU, I was working at Chase Bank as a client associate. 

Post-grad school goal

My goal is to start working in investment banking and provide financial research that aids in providing recommendations as well as valuations for clients.


I like to work with my hands and my body because expressing myself through art and various other mediums is a great way to self-reflect. Besides painting and drawing, I like to run and go to live shows. I also enjoy cooking and watching over my plants.
