Major: Psychology
Year in School: Senior

I am a psychology major turned pre-law and currently finishing my final undergraduate semester! I have lived in Fort Wayne all of my life, and I chose to stay and attend IPFW because of the small class sizes and personal attention the professors are able to provide. When I am not working or studying, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, and I absolutely love to travel! I am very interested in foreign cultures, and I hope to tour East Asia before finishing my education.

Along with going to school full time, I also work full time off campus, as well as part time on campus. I am heavily involved with student organizations on campus including: IPSGA, AmbassaDONs, Dean's Diplomats, Circle K International, and the BIG Event. Circle K Internations has also led me to work at a distrcit and international level with giving back to our communities and building my leadership skills as well. It has aided in giving me more focus in my career in the public arena, and in the fall I will be working towards my Master's Degree in Public Administration.

Major: Accounting
Year in School: Senior 

Coming to the United States had always been a dream for me. Never had I realized I would end up in the shivering cold of Indiana. Nonetheless, I love it here. IPFW and Fort Wayne both have given me such amazing people in my life who I call friends, professors, and supervisors, who are basically family now. IPFW gave me countless opportunities to get inovlved on campus, the courage to go out and do new things, my first job, my first apartment and many more. I owe this place a lot. Now in my final year of college, I can say that I accomplished a lot in the past few years and I am proud of where it will take me in the future.
