REASON FOR BECOMING AN AMBASSADOR
Being a CFA Student Ambassador allows me to help others make the decision of where to study and grow as a person. I didn't have a choice of where to go to college due to medical reasons. So, giving the opportunity for potential students to explore, ask questions, and see everything they need to make this decision is one I am extremely passionate about.
