AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE
My interest in making finance more than a zero-sum game has led me to complement my Finance and Multinational Management concentrations with a minor in Mathematics and positions at the Penn Microfinance and Empowering Philanthropy Capital clubs.
I have attempted to stay in touch with my international roots by minoring in German and Portuguese, as well as by directing the Spanish Language Table and dancing salsa and merengue on the weekends.
In the future, I intend to work in either international finance or consulting

UNIQUE HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCES
As Co-Secretary General of Costa Rica International MUN, I brought together students from public and private schools in an innovative collaboration to form the conference. Dismantling the wall between social classes was both challenging and powerful.
One of my greatest shifts in perspective occurred while at a monotonous internship at CCWFD when I met the firefighters. Our lunch-time chats ranged from encounters with violence on the job to hunting narratives vivified by a stream of photos of dead hogs to discussions of classical music.
