It is hard to keep up with Maria. A third year Industrial Engineer, Maria has had more experience in her 5 semesters here at Tech than most freshly graduated college students – and she is about to get much more. Maria recently accepted her offer to work for Disney (where dreams really DO come true!) this upcoming spring where she will be internally consulting for Disney Global: a sector of the Industrial Engineering Profession Internship Division.
After her magical semester at Disney, Maria will then go on to intern on Wall Street either at Goldman Sachs or JP Morgan. Although she hasn’t accepted either of her offers she is leaning towards JP Morgan (they’re currently in a really unique position, and she feels like there’s a lot to learn at a time like now). There, she will be on Wall Street working on the trading floor as a part of the Investment Banking and Technology division.
You are such a rock star!!

Do you want to take the first step toward providing a patient with a second chance at life? Registering as a potential bone marrow donor is an exciting chance to do one of the best things you could ever do in life and become someone’s lifesaver!
Get excited! Because with your help the registry for potential bone marrow donors will grow and help even more people with leukemia and life-threatening illnesses. The Bone Marrow Donor Drive in coordination with Delete Blood Cancer will be held this Tuesday and Wednesday, November 12th and 13th from 10am – 4pm on Skiles Walkway. Come down and for a simple and FREE 5-minute mouth swab and SAVE SOMEONE’S LIFE! Every one who registers as a potential bone marrow donor will also get free swag for their time.
If you get a match (which is less than a 1/500 chance), you most likely do NOT have to undergo a bone marrow donation!
3/4 of people are asked to give a stem cell donation, in which some of your blood is removed, passed through a machine that filters out the blood stem cells, and the remaining blood is returned to you through the other arm.
1/4 of people are asked for a bone marrow donation, which involves a 1-2 hour surgery under anesthesia. You may feel some discomfort in the tailbone area for a few hours or days but most likely not unmanageable pain – and you just saved a life! In fact, you will most likely be asked to give a bone marrow donation only in the case of an infant or child - little angels need the purest donations!
For more information on the event, go to https://www.facebook.com/events/487215778053344/?context=create&ref_dashboard_filter=calendar.

Thanks and see you there!
