As a prospective International Business student and aspiring corporate lawyer, I consider myself to be very fortunate to have Edgar Rosillo as my Target Your Future professional mentor this year. In our first emails, I could tell that he was extremely interested in my educational and vocational goals. Over the phone, he spoke very highly of Deloitte, a company I am now quite interested in, and gave me great insight on how Deloitte conducts business with international clients. He reminded me that at my age, I should remain open-minded to the wealth of opportunities available in the McCombs School of Business, as well as in the world of business and law. We discussed and refined some of my plans to study abroad, join specific UT organizations, and interview for summer internships. I cannot wait to meet him in person when he drives up to Austin, Texas for a visit. I am very grateful that Target Your Future and Deloitte paired me with someone who is genuinely interested in seeing me succeed in life.
