Isabel Carta3forWPThe child of a father who worked abroad, Isabel Carta and her family moved every few years, giving her an appreciation for various cultures and countries. Carta has focused her college experience on developing skills that will allow her to succeed in global business.

She is pursuing a double major in finance and international business with a double minor in economics and German to allow her to have her own international career. Carta is on her way to achieving that goal with a finance internship in Germany beginning in August, and held a previous finance internship in El Salvador. She currently holds an apprenticeship with fundraising organization RuffaloCODY, and has raised $140,000 for USF Telefund, the highest amount among current staff members.

Carta’s experience of growing up internationally also instilled in her a passion for making others feel comfortable in their environments. She was a teaching assistant for the USF freshman experience class and has worked with INTO USF helping international students adapt to American university life.

Carta shows equal dedication to academics and student organizations: she has made the College of Business Dean’s List, is a Phi Sigma Theta National Honor Society Nominee, and is a member of the Economic Scholars Society, the International Business Board, and the Student Finance Association.
