Michy Flores grew up in Tehachapi, CA-a small mountain town known as "Land of The Four Seasons". There, she served various leadership roles in organizations that motivated her to continue her involvement on campus in San Diego. At San Diego Mesa College, she was recognized for excellence on the Dean's List and as the Vice President of the EOP Club for helping students make life and career plans. At San Diego State University, she became a mentee under the Aztec Mentor Program, joined Scholars Without Borders, the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) an honor society, and currently serves as the Vice President of Scholarships and Awards for Delta Sigma Pi. Her passion has always involved learning as much as she can in order to help others. In the Spring of 2014, Michy took a trip to her family's hometown, El Salvador, which ended up becoming more than just a vacation. During her time there, a young girl walked up to her and asked if she could purchase one of her handmade bracelets, just so that she could afford to buy a meal for dinner. That was a moment of enlightenment and the formation of what would become Michy's future career. While abroad, she realized how high the rate of inflation was, yet, noticed the flourishing amounts of agricultural goods. She figured that the best way to bring back some of El Salvador to the U.S. and vice versa, would be to base her career off imports and exports. Having decided to major in International Business, Michy hopes to improve her family's home country economy one trade at a time. Michy has always found joy in becoming involved with groups and organizations that give back. For that reason, she decided to join Delta Sigma Pi—a prestigious coed business Fraternity—filled with like-minded individuals, who too, want to make a difference. Michy feels that with the endless commitments, professionalism, and brotherhood being experienced within the Fraternity, success is limitless. At the times when she’s not particularly trying to change the world while being professional… she enjoys going to music festivals, concerts, art museums, road trips, working out, DIY projects, and eating lots of tasty foods such as: poke, ramen, fish tacos, froyo and more!
