Team described in one word:
Humble

Get to Know Us:

Laura is a student of International Business and Accounting. She is from San Juan, Puerto Rico and anticipates graduating in December 2019. She has been an Enactus member for the past four years and serves as the team’s Financial Co-leader. Laura believes her biggest success with Enactus has been her ability to speak to a large audience. “Public speaking to a public of more than 300 people used to terrify me, but I didn’t let my fears get in the way of my success.”

More about Laura:

  • What I’m reading: Glimpses: Through Holocaust and Liberation by Benjamin Bender
  • Theme song: “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson
  • Who inspires me: My mom. She taught to work hard, dream big and to never stay comfortable in one place. Also, she taught me to help others, no matter the cost.
  • Enactus in one word: Growth
  • Best Enactus moment: Visiting the Natural Reserve of Luquillo for the first time for our RenaCEN project. It was in that moment that I knew I had to be a presenter for our team at the Enactus Puerto Rico National Competition and let people know how beautiful and inspiring that natural gem is in Puerto Rico.
  • In five years, I will be… “…be a leader and a social-business advocate in Puerto Rico. I will for sure be a manager of one or multiple projects. I will also be an Enactus alumni and will continue impacting the students that decide to join this amazing organization.”
