Hometown: New York City, NY


Hi everyone! I am currently a BBA Senior pursuing a concentration in Finance along with a dual-degree in Philosophy, Politics, & Economics (PPE) through the College for Literature, Science, and the Arts. As a NYC native, I'm a huge NY sports fan. While I am a bit far from home, the U-M and Ross community have made Ann Arbor my home away from home, and I feel honored to be part of it every day.

Since finishing my freshman year at Ross, I am still in disbelief over how much I have learned and developed. Much of the credit for the experiences and knowledge that I have gained should be awarded to the numerous opportunities, events, and people that I have come into contact with thus far. These experiences include going to speaker events with notable business leaders like Bill Ackman at Robertson Auditorium, social impact conferences at Tauber Colloquium, and case challenges like the Sanger Leadership Center's Crisis Challenge. Through my participation in them, Ross truly allowed me to discover and understand my professional interests. However, Ross' greatest resource has and will always be its people. Whether it's the professors, faculty, or my peers, I always feel inspired and motivated by every conversation I have.

As I combine my professional interests with my personal interests, I now find myself involved in a number of unique organizations that offer me valuable experience and practice in the field. I am interested in finance and the intersection between business and public policy, in addition to the role it plays in social impact, and each of my activities have helped me learn more about this. I now find myself pitching stocks, conducting market research, consulting for local businesses, and more, simply through the opportunities that Ross offers. If it were not for these experiences and the Career Development Office’s miraculous support, I would not have been able to secure the first step in my career post-graduation. I still remember how calm I felt during the first day of work at my summer internship among my jittery colleagues, and it made me realize how much I have grown since I joined the Ross community. I am extremely proud to be a Ross student and excited for the next few years here.

What do you do in your free time? I love playing and watching basketball and football with my friends whenever I have free time.
