Co-President

Hello! I’m a junior majoring in Communication Studies and minoring in Entrepreneurship. I’m from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I’m a fun, outgoing guy that loves hanging out with friends and enjoying every sports game that’s on TV. I also like cooking, watching movies and exploring new cultures. Becoming a part of the MISS family has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as a student, and I can’t wait to do great things with all of you this year!

¡Hola! I'm from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico and my happy place will forever be the beach. I'm a Sophomore majoring in Business Administration and minoring in Political Science. I am very passionate about current events, social impact, and traveling. I joined the MISS family as a freshman and have enjoyed every step of the way. MISS is full of diverse people with unique interests, stories, and backgrounds. I encourage anyone who wants to get to know a group like this to apply. I look forward to represent MISS and to meet even more amazing people through this society.

GABRIEL DAVILA

Co-President

Hi, everyone! I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and spent all my life in the warm weather before coming to Ann Arbor to study. I’m a Sophomore majoring in Business Administration and concentrating in Strategy. Outside of MISS, I’m a brother in Delta Sigma Pi, and I’m also involved in a couple of Business Programs and Clubs for Minority Students. I love traveling and meeting people from different cultures, getting involved and helping the community, sports (especially Michigan Football), and I’m down to anything from going out to staying in and watching movies. Feel free to reach out; I’m really looking forward to keep meeting amazing people through MISS

Gretchen Andrews

VP of Operations

Hey all! I'm from Arizona, and I study Film and Psychology as a senior. I've studied in Denmark, Peru, and Australia--and am still obsessed with AU! The MISS family is the one of the greatest (and funnest) communities to be a part of on campus. Joining was by far one of the best decisions I made in college. I also love to play guitar/sing, hike, play tennis, act, write, practice Spanish, and cook/bake in the cooperative house I live in! MISS is full of incredible, open-minded souls with unique stories. I encourage anyone to apply who truly wants to get to know people!
