Why did you choose Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
I chose Cornell because I knew its breadth of educational and extracurricular opportunities would transform me into an analytical problem solver, thoughtful and collaborative student, leader, and a better, more worthwhile version of myself.

What is your favorite thing about Cornell and/or Cornell Engineering?
My favorite thing about Cornell Engineering is that every student has a unique perspective and a different set of experiences to offer both in and outside the classroom.

How did you get involved outside the classroom?
I’m a member of a Cornell project team, Cornell University Sustainable Design. I participate in research through the ORIE department in the College of Engineering. I’m an analyst at Cornell Business Analytics.
