Lizbeth Encinas  believes in maximizing her options to ensure a bright future while minimizing uncertainty. "When I started at the UofA I finished the pre-requisites for both nursing and Eller. Either a career in nursing or business sounded interesting." Now a junior in the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management, Lizbeth is happy with her decision to go the business route. "It helped that my family is really supportive. When I had to make the decision, they asked me where did I see myself being happier." Lizbeth is excelling academically and recently received the  Finishing Strong  award at the Earn to Learn Evening of Honors ceremony.
