Daniel Connell is an avid backpacker who loves to explore remote parts of the world that are seldom traveled to. He is a third-year Financial Mathematics and Statistics major with a passion for connecting with people around the world and developing friendships through traveling. When he is not climbing mountains or sleeping under the stars, Daniel enjoys refining his culinary talents with regional influences from around the world. His travels were guided by his desire to develop fluency in Portuguese as well as to immerse himself in cultures and environments far different from what he had already known.
