  • Areas of expertise: My area of expertise is Finance and Risk Management Insurance with my minor in Ethnic Studies.
  • What did you most enjoy about Ethnic Studies? The most that I enjoyed about Ethnic Studies was learning more varied cultural background. However, I learned every ethnic group has their struggles, barriers, experiences, and stories in the history. I felt learning this knowledge can help me apply in the business world how to work with various people. It was another way to expose myself in a different way see people of color and less represented in the community.
  • How do you plan to apply your degree post-graduation?  I accepted a job at IMA financial group and started right after I graduated in CU Denver Spring 2018. I worked for certificate and renewal specialist relate to risk management insurance major. My plan is working for few years gain more experiences moving forward to any level jobs that might interest me.
