Hey! My name is Ale (she/her) and I am fourth year Asper student majoring in Marketing.
I absolutely love exploring new places whether it be five minutes from my house or halfway around the world. My travel experience began when I was five years old, with a two week road trip from Guatemala to Canada. Early this year I spent a semester abroad in Spain, and had the chance to visit 12 countries including Switzerland, France, Austria, and even Thailand.
I am really looking forward to meeting everyone! I had the time of my life throughout my exchange experience and I want you all to have that same feeling so feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
Danielle Jones President of AIMS
Hi all! My name is Danielle (she/her), I am an AIMS co-president. I am a 4th year Asper student, majoring in marketing and international business. I love travelling and always have. I have been travelling as much as possible during my time at university, and I went on exchange to the City University of Hong Kong in Fall 2019. This was one of the best experiences of my life, and made me want to give back to exchange students at the U of M!
I can't wait to meet you all! If you have any questions please reach out to me!
Jalene Moman VP of Marketing
Hello! My name is Jalene (she/her), VP of Marketing, so when you see posts on social media - that’s me!
I am in my fourth year as a marketing major here at the Asper School of Business. If I could, I would also be majoring in sociology and film, so if you have any film recommendations send them my way. Last semester I went on exchange to the Netherlands, which was ultimately cut short due to covid-19, but nevertheless the best experience. I got to bike to school everyday and ate as many stroopwafels as I could. For these upcoming semesters, I am so excited to help and connect with incoming exchange students to the U of M.
