Carlyn Bratt
Summer 2022 Intern

Daniel Maisch is a Senior at Illinois Wesleyan University majoring in Economics and Spanish.


Daniel chose this combination of disciplines because it opens up a variety of opportunities for service in corporate, public, and non-profit settings. Post graduation, he would like to work within the education field, potentially serving as a member of the AmeriCorps City Year Program or Teach for America .


Daniel was drawn to the SBDC because of the opportunity to further learn the operations of small businesses, as well as how we can better incorporate inclusive business practices to uplift and support minority businesses and business owners.


One of the passions that Daniel have developed over several years is educational equity. Over the summer of 2021, he had the opportunity to intern with the organization Breakthrough Collaborative, where we directly addressed the inequities faced by children in our education system.
