My motivation

I am motivated by my life experiences and by the hardworking people around me.

My latest accomplishments

I was recently indicted into Sigma Beta Delta International Honors Society, and I also received a tutoring certificate.

Next big goal

I plan to attend graduate school to pursue my master's degree in accounting, and from there take the CPA exam so that I can hopefully work for one of the big four accounting firms.

Why is choosing your own path important?

I have always believed in living an independent life since the time I was a child. Growing up, I wanted to achieve great things in life and that's why I work so hard in everything I do. This requires forging your own path.

Favorite place on campus

International Office located in Dominican Hall
