Leadership, Passion, and Motivation.
Three words best describe me. I am a passionate advocate for student interests, I’m motivated to do whatever it takes to reach a goal, and I relish leading a team to success.
As Class of 2019 Vice President of Administration, and more recently, as a Senator in Student Union, I have planned events and created a new program to feature the diversity of our class. I also sponsored resolutions and met university administration to help create the best possible college experience for our students. As a result of my work, I was awarded Best New Program and was a finalist for the Outstanding First-Year Leader award.
Last year, I spent a significant amount of time recolonizing SigEp, a fraternity on campus. As a co-founder, I developed a vision for the fraternity and helped recruit 50 members. I also lead our communications strategy.
This summer, I am working in the Prime Services – Institutional Sales division at Societe Generale.
Ever since I was thirteen, when I bought my first stock, I have been interested in finance. Now, as a finance major at Washington University in St. Louis, I have learned that the best way to be successful at anything is to do your homework; whether it be proposing a new Senate resolution or creating a trading strategy, I have found that doing in-depth research and developing a total understanding of a situation is the best way to solve a complicated problem.
I’m also very passionate about keeping an open mind. I love meeting new people and understanding the perspectives of others, especially those that I don’t agree with. This leads to some interesting experiences. I remember taking a train alone from Chicago to San Francisco, and talking with farmers, hunters, and even a blind roller coaster enthusiast along the way.
I enjoy reading, especially about history and research. My two favorite publications are the Brookings Institution and FiveThirtyEight. I have also been a classical cellist for over fourteen years.
