About Me:
I grew up in New York City, right in the heart of Spanish Harlem and left New York to attend college in Boston at Northeastern University where I received my undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Master's degree in Higher Education Administration. Outside of the office, I enjoy staying physically fit and teaching all about skin care!

Why should a high school student choose UM?
The University of Miami offers students a global experience for the student who is ready to be challenged in a much different way. From breakthrough research to athletic achievements, UM provides its students the opportunity to find their passions and pursue them!

What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite spot on campus is right in front of the College of Business; there is a fountain surrounded by palm trees – very serene and peaceful.

What advice would you give a high school student applying to UM?
Do not be afraid to challenge yourself. Take courses that will take you out of your comfort zone and will make your academic profile more appealing to an admission committee. College Admission Officers are always looking for students who will stand out academically!
