Tomas Estrella

"I am a junior at UNC and I have received the Dean’s List of Academic Distinction for the past five semesters. I have earned a 4.0 GPA and I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and a minor in Nutrition. I enjoy doing volunteer work and I try to recognize opportunities to help others. Most recently, I had the opportunity to feed and talk with the homeless in Downtown Denver. Volunteering has taught me how a simple action can have a significant impact on someone’s day. Many people find community service to be a burden but once you get out there and spend time helping others, community service benefits both the person you are helping, as well as yourself. Additionally, I have an aftermarket resale business. I acquire limited items like rare shoes and use marketing strategies to sell at a premium price which has helped me support myself through school. I am excited to graduate without any college debt. After earning my degree, I plan to work within the marketing department of a healthcare company. This will allow me to get the best of the worlds - marketing wellness and helping others".
