REASON FOR BECOMING AN AMBASSADOR
I wanted to become a CFA Ambassador because, as an Arts Administration student, I recognize the importance of the arts and I want to share that with others. As a CFA student, I see the influence that the college has had on my studies and in my life at UK, and I want to be able to share that with incoming students.
