Josemaria Soriano, Physics and Mathematics major, Class of 2020
Coming from Peru as a low-income first-generation student was not easy, but with the support from my professors, I was able to learn and gain invaluable quantitative skills and research opportunities. These allowed me to excel academically, with two published publications, and professionally, securing a full-time position at JPMorgan after graduation.
