“Home. Home. Home.”

Isabel Ramos Granja Reed is a finalist to be the student speaker at the December 2018 College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Commencement ceremony. As a transfer student who joined the University of Iowa as a junior, Isabel’s pathway to Commencement is a little different than most of her fellow graduates—but her Iowa experience has been no less meaningful. She is graduating with Distinction, having completed the major in Psychology and earned the Certificate in Non-Profit Management.

While at Iowa, Isabel became an entrepreneur, launching her own business called Comigo, an online platform to help college students find new collaborators on their campus. Building on its success on campus—and supported by the UI’s John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center—she has successfully pitched the idea at competitions, and hopes to start licensing the app to other colleges and universities.

In her speech, Isabel talks about her gratitude for finding an academic home at Iowa, where she has had the ability to discover and explore all of her many passions. Listen here:
