ALPFA STUDENT LEADER SPOTLIGHT

Madelyn Flores - University of Texas at Austin ALPFA Student Leader
"Traveling gives me a better perspective on the World"

What is the Best Advice you ever received?
Stop planning so long in advance. If you are making decisions based on a ten year plan, your choices don't reflect the position you're currently in, but the one your thinking about. This can make you choose the wrong opportunities in the moment.

What is your media mix (Music, Publications)?
I really enjoy Bloomberg and Spotify!

Who do you follow? How do you stay informed?
I followed news networks and influential leaders of mine. I check quick news updates and stay on top of trends in the industries I'm interested in.

What do you do when you are not at school?
I try and travel as often as I can. It's given me a better perspective on the world and the decisions I make. If I'm not traveling, I'm taking small adventures with my friends and family.

What are your goals for 2017?
Have a daily routine to help me reach my goals and to run a marathon with my brother.

What defines you as a student leader?
Having trust in others will allow them to reach the level of success they have set for themselves and allow me to help them blossom into student leaders themselves.
