Antonio Bajan


My name is Antonio Bajan. I’m from Eastlake, Ohio. It’s about a half hour east of Cleveland. I’m currently a senior here at OU. I first picked accounting as my major but I recently changed it to finance and business analytics. So I guess, I’m kind of a number person. I should be graduating on May 2017. When I graduate, I want to move to New York City and find a job somewhere in finance. My dream is to live in NYC for most of my 20’s. After that, I want to start a family somewhere more warm, preferably somewhere on the west coast. I’m also a big sports fan. I love playing and watching basketball or soccer. Two of my favorite teams are the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chelsea F.C. However, I’m working as a student employee particularly on the metrics here for The Center For Entrepreneurship.
