2014 Welcome Ambassador Captain




International Business & Marketing


Yardley, PA

UD Involvement:

UDAB (University of Delaware Alternative Break), Greek Life, Marketing Club, and Outing Club.

Most exciting UD memory:

My first UD football game! It was so much fun, and that was was the first time my friends and I really bonded with each other.

Advice for a new student:

Be yourself, and be open to new opportunities and experiences.

Advice for their parents:

Your student will miss you as much as you will miss them, whether they tell you or not.

Why I chose Delaware:

I fell in love with Delaware thanks to my tour guide when I was a senior in high school, then my specialized major, and now I love all my friendships and connections I made at UD.

How I decided on my major:

I always wanted to work with the global market and other countries or culture. I find it very fascinating to learn more about and understand their ethics and customs. Definitely choose a major that fits you and that you are really interested in - I mean, it is you future we are talking about!

Plans after college:

Graduate school, travel, or the workforce. I have no idea what the future holds for me and that is the best part!

Interesting fact:

I met my best friend at NSO!
