Tatum Van Willingh

BSBA in Business Information and Analytics 2021

Hometown: Cape Town, South Africa

What’s your best Daniels moment, experience or class?

Joining UBSA, Gateway to Business, both the Madden Challenge and professor Stephen Haag, and Info 1010—because of both becoming more skilled in Excel and professor Gisella Bassani.

Your go-to junk food?

In America, Snickers or Talenti Gelato Fudge Brownie flavor. In South Africa, Ghost Pops.

Where would you go if you could travel anywhere in the world?

Antarctica. My goal in life is to travel to all 7 continents. This one is probably going to be the most difficult to get to, so if presented with the opportunity I would take it, as soon as I get clothing that will make sure I don’t die of hypothermia.

Famous person (dead or alive) that you’d most want to have lunch with

Either Barack Obama or Elon Musk.

Favorite hobby or activity

I love scuba diving, photography and pretending I know how to snowboard.

Favorite quote, line or motto for life

Every interaction with anyone anywhere was an opportunity to gain additional perspectives.

Favorite internship, job, or volunteer experience

Traveling to Medan, Indonesia, to help build a school and interacting with some of the students there.
