Finance & Entrepreneurship
MY CORE VALUES
One of my main values is family. My parents are my biggest role models, and my father is the reason why I pursued Finance and Entrepreneurship. His dedication for his role as the Chief Financial Officer and the Head of Consumer Lending at United States Automobile Association, or USAA, is what sparked my interest in my choice of major.
My passion for volleyball is what granted me the opportunity to become a coach to nine players. Through volleyball, I learned the importance of communication, leadership, and teamwork. Volleyball is a huge part of my life, and I am so grateful for the valuable lessons that I have learned from playing such an amazing sport.
Working in a professional team setting has allowed me to understand the importance of teamwork. Being on a selected team chosen at random has given me the opportunity to trust my team members and work together toward a common goal. I have learned numerous valuable lessons that I plan on utilizing in my future career.
Before stepping into the Eller College of Management, I did not understand how critical it is to know how to effectively speak in public. Although I take charge in team settings, being in front of a crowd has never been my strong suit until entering this class. My Business Communication course has contributed heavily toward my progression and improvement in my public speaking performance. Establishing credibility in each deliverable and knowing your audience are the two key takeaways I plan to implement in future presentations.
