An active member of the invitation only Bulls Business Community and the Business Honors Program, Gabriela Garcia says she did not come to USF to simply get a degree, she came to transform herself into a professional who leaves her mark on the university, and make life better for herself and others in the process.
Garcia credits the BBC’s frequent networking opportunities and improve sessions for her understanding on how to work in a team and what it means to be a professional. A summer abroad experience with the Business Honors Program helped her better understand cultural differences and the importance of cultural literacy in international businesses. But the most important lesson she has learned, she says, is to say “yes” more often. Doing so has led her to leadership positions she never expected to hold. For the USF Residence Hall Association, she was a senator, director of programming, and then president, a position she currently holds. Garcia became a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority and now serves as a member of its leadership team. These leadership roles have allowed her to meet the goal she set before she got here: to leave her mark on USF.
Garcia said such engagement is as important to her as her coursework but one can’t overlook her academic success. She has a 3.91 GPA and her name has appeared on the dean’s list every semester that she has been at USF. In 2014, Garcia received the Exceptional Scholars Award from the Business Honors Program.
