Where did you attend high school?

I.E.S Néstor Almendros

Why did you choose to attend GSW?

The main reason I decided to come to GSW was because of tennis. Coach Sewell contacted me and offered me a very good scholarship.

What is your favorite part about GSW?

I love the fact that it’s a small school and everyone knows each other. This surely makes everything easier and creates a very good atmosphere between students and faculty & staff. I also like the student-teacher ratio the school offers since professors are going to know you and your situation, they will help you as much as they can. As an international student-athlete, this is something that has helped me a lot through my four years at GSW.

What is your favorite memory or experience you've had at GSW?

If I would have to choose one, it would definitely be meeting the people I have met. The friendships I have made through these four years are for a lifetime.  

What is your major? What degree will you receive upon graduation?

I am a Senior Marketing major. I will graduate with a Bachelor of Business Administration.

Why did you choose your major?

I believe GSW has an excellent business program that offers quality courses together with a friendly environment with the faculty staff. I wanted to study something related to business but also something that would challenge my creative self. Marketing has always drawn my attention and I think it is a fascinating area that has a big potential within businesses and that is growing every day.

When is your graduation date?

Who is your favorite professor? Why?

My favourite professor is Dr. Conner. I have had her for Principles of Marketing, Consumer Behaviour, and now Marketing Communications; and even though sometimes she can be very tough, I love the way she teaches her courses. She makes you push yourself at the same time she makes sure you enjoy the class, which I think it’s essential for a professor. She has passion for what she does and inspires me to get better in what I am studying.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love to exercise. Apart from tennis I practice kitesurfing and snowboarding, and I really enjoy outdoor activities in general. I also love watching movies, getting to spend time with friends and family, and traveling.

Fun fact about you?

I lived in the UK for four months, and people say I am weird because I pour milk before my cereal.

What advice would you give incoming freshmen?

My advice to incoming freshmen is to try to maximize their time at GSW as much as possible. Getting to know your professors and being involved on campus will definitely offer them a lot of opportunities towards their future and college experience. If you are confident and work hard, the school is going to help you to succeed.
