Denasan will pursue a doctoral degree in Veterinary Medicine in order to take her passion for marine conservation efforts to the next level. She will attend a veterinary school that will allow her to work hands on with the rehabilitation of marine life. Denasan’s love for traveling and leadership has been the driving force for an international business minor. She intends to start her own marine rehabilitation center abroad in the future. Outside of academics, Denasan enjoys spending time with her family, watching or playing sports, and exploring with her friends.
