Biography: My name is Maximo De La Cruz. I am a student at Princeton University and am majoring in Politics, with a minor in Entrepreneurship and African American Studies. I was born in the Bronx, New York and was raised by a single mother in a predominantly Dominican neighborhood. I am the youngest of three siblings in our household.
I am actively involved in the Princeton Corporate Finance Club, specifically, its education sector. I am also on the advocacy board of the Princeton Latinos y Amigos organization. I work very closely with my team to raise awareness of the unmet needs of the university's Latinx community and to ensure that students and administrators on campus hear our voice.
I envision myself one day creating the policy changes necessary to help communities in need globally, prosper and hope to serve as a role model for the young students in them.
