An accomplished equestrian, Miss Joan Caroline Benjamin is spending time at Cascade Stables “to decompress from my week” of studying finance at Tulane University.
She spent a lot of time with horses, winning national championships in middle school and high school. She was the 2020 UPHA Adult Challenge Cup Champion and National Saddle Riding Champion in 2016 and USA Saddle World Cup Gold Medalist in 2018.
Joan is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Wisdom Benjamin. His mother is the former Helaine Higgins.
As a student at Uptown University, she is a member of the recruiting committee for the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity and is on the dean’s list.
This summer, she will intern at a financial firm in Austin, Texas, where she “hopes to further improve my professional skills through my internship experience.” Her future plans include working in the field of wealth management and hopes her internship will “give me a more accurate description of what my career of choice will be after graduation.”
She has also worked in the residential real estate industry.
During her sub-deb tenure, Joan was in the courses of Squires, Les Pierrettes, and Apollo.
