My Greatest Supporters

My greatest supporters throughout my journey at St. Mary's would have to be my parents. They push me to be the best person. My friends that I made throughout my time here, for providing a memorable experience especially my best friends Tahlia Padilla and Alondra Mendoza. As well to my dogs, for showing me unconditional love and joy. As for my professor, the knowledge they provided me.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Taking the opportunity to go abroad to Rome, Italy. It help me build character and become more independent! I was open to a new world perspective, and learned so much about different cultures. The friendships I made throughout my time there will always have a special place in my heart. I will never forget the early morning sight seeing, quick trips to the cafe, and the late nights out.

My Next Chapter

After graduation I will be entering the workforce right away! I will be taking on a position with the FDIC in the risk management team. I will begin my journey in Salt Lake City, Utah. I look forward to starting my career, as well as exploring a new area.

Favorite Quote

"If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. It's a plus for everybody."
— Anthony Bourdain
