Meet our SWIM (Sompo Women in Insurance Management) Scholar, Sabrina Rao
Where are you from?
I am from Coventry, Rhode Island
What do you enjoy most about High Point University?
At High Point University, I strive to build the most incredible future for myself and leave an everlasting positive impact on my community. I am involved in Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Society for students who demonstrate excellence in their first year at college and The National Society of Leadership and Success. These organizations allow me to grow as an individual while working alongside some of the most inspiring individuals. I have also been a part of Academic Services to serve as a Supplemental Instructor, Technical Assistant, and Tutor in various mathematics and computer science classes. Beyond academics, I am a part of the High Point University Cheerleading Team. Cheerleading allows me to partake in a sport that I love and can help motivate and impact the entire community.
What are your aspirations after High Point University?
After college, I plan to continue my education to become an Actuary. Being a part of the SWIM Program with Sompo International will allow me to get another step closer to my goals in insurance. Building social networks and gaining exposure in the real business world is precisely what I need to get where I want to be. I am eager to explore the connections through Strickland’s Women’s L.I.F.T. Fellowship to become a trailblazer and leader in the Actuarial Science Field.
What are your expectations from the SWIM program?
All my life I have been doing all that I can to help build up the best future for myself possible. Up until this point that has involved long days and late nights in the classrooms, meeting with professors, and studying. I have been waiting for the opportunity for my hard work to pay off and be able to apply the knowledge I have acquired in a real-life business setting. The SWIM program with Sompo International is exactly that. I believe Sompo has the capabilities to shape me as a woman to be the leader I have dreamed of. I am eager to work with the exemplary individuals of Sompo International and receive personalized coaching to help me stay on a path to make an everlasting positive impact. The SWIM program has the power to help so many aspiring women in insurance reach their goals and I hope this program continues to make a difference in more people’s lives than mine.
