Meet Omar:

The leadership roles I have at NIU are:  being a Finance Coordinator for the Adela de la Torre Honors Society, Public Relations for the Adela de la Torre Honors Society and the Community Service Director for the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting (ALPFA). Extra Curricular activities I am involved in are Volleyball, Soccer, Spanish Club, French Club, NI Guide, NIU Cares Day and Rake Across DeKalb. My campus related interests are community service and being a resource to incoming students. 

An academic goal I have is to graduate with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and to be as involved as I am today with ALPFA and ATHS. I want to get more involved in the Latino Resource Center and all the Campus. A career goal I have is to get experience in the Finance field for some years and eventually start a business.

Scholarships I have received include: The District 155 Teachers Scholarship and the Lions Club Scholarship.

Some of my hobbies are soccer, volleyball, watching movies, and listening to music.
