Howdy, my name is Braden Deras, and I’m a junior finance major from Keller, Texas, just north of Fort Worth and Dallas. Currently, I am involved on campus with the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, Texas A&M Consulting Club, Aggie Investment Club, and Order of Omega Greek Honor Society. I grew up playing football and baseball so naturally I am a huge Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers fan. In my free time I enjoy working out, golfing, and being in the outdoors. Coming to Texas A&M was not an obvious choice for me because no one in my family had ever attended A&M. After attending small private schools for most of my life, I knew that I wanted to attend a large university with plenty of people and opportunities. When I first toured campus during my senior year of high school, I found its culture, size, and reputation to be the most appealing of my college choices. After obtaining my bachelor’s degree in finance, I plan on attending graduate school to obtain a master’s degree in either a business or law field. On the more exciting side of life, I plan to check a few new things off my bucket list by doing as much traveling as possible as soon as I graduate. One thing not too many people know about me, I am the second oldest child in a family of eight. I have two brothers, three sisters, and three dogs. I am looking forward to learning a lot and serving the clients and staff of Traditions Wealth Advisors.
