I actually began as a student at UW-Milwaukee last year. After being there for a semester and realizing it wasn’t for me, I decided to transfer to UW-Fox Valley. My older brother Anthony was attending there at the time and had a good experience. I also wanted to be able to pay for my own school and UW-Fox has helped me do that by having low-cost tuition. I am also able to save money by living at home and working at my job.

When I first started college, I was a mechanical engineering major. My dad, who happens to be an engineer, had encouraged me to pursue engineering and I thought it would be a good fit since I was always ahead in math and science throughout high school. After getting into the actual engineering classes, I quickly realized that it was not what I wanted to do as a career. After that, I knew I wanted to do business. I had always enjoyed business back in high school from being in DECA to taking all the business classes my school had to offer.

When I first started thinking about transferring to UW-Fox, I was a little worried that it would be hard to make friends since you don’t have the experience of living in dorms. I was surprised to meet a lot of people through a club that I joined called Cru, which is a Christian organization on campus. It helped me to meet a lot of new friends who have helped me build my faith.

After UW-Fox, I plan on transferring to UW-Oshkosh to get my degree in business management.
