Difference Maker Ely Kraft is an admissions representative at the ANU Louisville Campus. A native of Venezuela, she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration-management from Santa Maria University, and then traveled to London, England where she earned a certificate in English grammar from Cambridge University. During her eleven years at ANU, Ely has provided guidance and encouragement to thousands of students, from enrollment to graduation, and beyond.
“I have the best job in the world, being part of my students’ educational journey. Many of our students are single parents, and I am inspired by their motivation and their drive to succeed as they manage their families while going to school.”
“Many of our Hispanic students left their homes in other countries and were willing to sacrifice everything just to be free. I really want to make a difference in their lives.”
“As students at ANU, I can see them become happier, more confident, more goal-oriented, and financially independent. My greatest reward is when they start their career with a great job and they call to share it with me.”
Yamisleydis Ferrer, a native of Cuba, has worked closely with Ely as a student in the ANU medical assisting program. “There are not enough words to describe the passion and dedication that Ely gives to her job,” Yamisleydis said. “I personally feel blessed that I had the opportunity to meet her. Ely gave me hope and the desire to better myself and be successful. I am very thankful.”
Surgical technology graduate Eduardo Del Toro also feels that Ely‘s support was integral to his success at ANU. “She helped me out from the beginning to the end,” he explained.
