My motivation

I am motivated by the idea of being the best possible version of myself. This drive is bolstered by my vision to do everything I'm committed to with excellence, and to improve the communities that I'm connected to. 

My latest accomplishments

I took off school last semester to work in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a Hillsdale College alumnus at Alex Brown, a wealth management firm. During my time there, I conducted equity analysis and was an integral part of the research process for a stock added to the portfolio manager’s portfolio.

Next big goal

With graduation approaching in May 2018, l aspire to receive magna cum laude honors from Hillsdale and begin my career in investment banking. 

Why is choosing your own path important?

The most powerful ability that we have as humans is the power to choose - an ability that will determine whether we live as spectators or actors in the world. Making the determination to charter a course in life that is true to your personal convictions and ambitions is what truly equips you to shape yourself into an accomplished, fulfilled, and inspired human being.

Favorite place on campus

Hillsdale College’s Heritage room - a beautiful room tucked away in the corner of the library, it displays some of the most iconic thinkers in the western tradition. It’s also a great place to grab a short snooze in an armchair.
