One interesting fact about you: I recently started up a small business Hecho Con Amor, all your celebration needs made with love, and a Youtube channel! I love connecting with others!
What I wish I had known when I was in college: There is still time to get involved on campus no matter what year or semester it is! People you connect with during college show once it’s time to graduate and are looking for the next step! And to also find your balance, be your best advocate, and keep up your amazing work, you’re here for a reason!

One interesting fact about you: I enjoy playing soccer on weekends.
What I wish I had known when I was in college: That creating and maintaining networks is pretty much essential for personal and professional growth after college. I was fortunate to figure it out by accident in my last two years of college.
