Her Campus: What is your dream career?
Daniel Tran: My ultimate goal is to become a partner at a consulting firm.
H.C.: What made you decide on Miami?
D.T.: My friends and I back in high school, after we got our acceptance letters, created a March Madness for colleges. We applied to a lot of big private and public schools so we would have a lot of options to choose from. We stacked schools up against each other based on criteria like school size, college town, Greek life, the business schools, alumni network, etc. For me, Miami won the March Madness, and for my friend it was Pennsylvania State University.
H.C.: What is your ideal date?
D.T.: On my ideal date I’ll cook her dinner at my place and then we’ll take a long walk on the wharf or go ice skating, and then end the night with ice cream. (laughs)
H.C.: What qualities do you find most attractive in a girl?
D.T.: I find a girl with a sense of humor to be very attractive, because my days are usually long so I like a girl who can brighten up my day. I also like a girl who is smart and who loves dogs as much as I do.
H.C.: If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would you go? Why?
D.T.: I would go to South Africa because I have never been there. I would visit the Cape of Hope, where you can see both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at the same time.
H.C.: What do you like to do in your free time?
D.T.: During the week I like to go for runs or grab dinner with friends. On the weekends you can typically find me at broken or getting dinner with friends.
H.C.: Who is your celebrity crush?
D.T.: Alice Eve, the British Actress or Margot Robbie from Wolf of Wall Street.
H.C.: What shows are you currently obsessed with?
D.T.: I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones, Scandal, and Flash. I’m also currently trying to get into the new season of American Horror story.
