What do you love most about FIU and your involvement here? 

What I love most about FIU is the ability to gain a family. Spending most of our time at either work or school, you get to build incredible relationships with individuals that will last a lifetime.

What advice would you give to a potential donor who is considering investing in FIU? 

Investing in FIU is an opportunity to shape the future. Our students are amazing! They have a willingness to learn, advance and take meaningful action within the Florida community, but also on a global scale. Being part of that impact will be a gratifying experience.

Why do you think giving back is important to the advancement of FIU and its students? 

Giving back is essential! Whether through time, skills or money, giving back is a positive quality that yields a positive outcome, not just to the students, but also to the donor.
