As a kid, I loved to do 1000-piece puzzles, which sparked my love for looking for the bigger picture of things among all those little pieces, knowing somehow they fit. I think that international business is about putting all those little transactions together to reveal a picture of a stable, growing global market.

When I found out on my campus tour that SVSU has an AASCB-accredited business school, there was no doubt in my mind that SVSU was where I wanted to start building my career.

Scholarship support has completely changed my life. It has provided me with the freedom to quit one of my jobs and put most of my effort into becoming a better person and professional. I not only have more time to study, but also attend networking events and pitch competitions as well as take leadership positions on campus. In fact, I won first place at the Cardinal Business Plan Competition and have started my own business, Treasured Within.

By having less of a financial burden, I’m able to focus on working hard to make my dreams a reality.
