Monica Hernandez is a sophomore majoring in Sociology with a concentration in Business and Society. Though Monica was born and raised in High Point, N.C., her family is originally from Mexico. Upon graduation from high school, she decided to stay near family and enrolled in Wake Forest University where she became a member of the Alpha Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity. She hopes to attend graduate school after she completes undergrad at WFU. Monica is a first-generation college student who received a merit-based scholarship that is granted for first-generation college students.
When she is not working on schoolwork, Monica enjoys running and reading. In high school, she ran track, which is where she fell in love with the sport. She reads almost every day to stay intrigued by new ideas. In addition, Monica works in the equipment room of the athletic department where she is able to gain new connections with her peers and establish a hard work ethic.
“The BCG internship has been a great experience for me, being that it is only my second internship while being in college,” said Monica.
This internship has given her a second set of useful skills and knowledge to use in her career path. She has really enjoyed the team and working on the C-Suite project with her fellow interns. She is a very hard working, goal-oriented person who has learned a lot about dedication through the guidance of her parents, who keep her motivated to always push forward. She’s also motivated through her own personal desire to have a positive impact on the lives of others.
“No matter what I am doing, I just want to have positive values,” she said.
