About Me

I am very extroverted, and love interacting with other people. I love to debate, and am very competitive. I have a passion for business, and especially sales and negotiation. I look up to individuals like Warren Buffett who were able to become extremely successful, and then give back tremendously to their community.

Campus and Community Involvement

I have been an Honors College Honors Ambassador and the Freshman Representative of the National Merit Organization, and am still a member of the Honors College. I was also selected to be a member of the Student Fee Advisory Committee on campus.

Awards and Honors

I have been fortunate enough to be selected as a National Merit Scholar, in addition to my Tier One Scholarship. I was also ranked in the top two percent of my class in high school, and was voted “Most likely to succeed” by my graduating class. I received a “Young Entrepreneurs” award, and recently I was selected as one of the Honors College “Outstanding Freshmen.”

Study Abroad

I would love to study abroad in Europe, preferably a large city, such as London or Paris. I’m most interested by the potential to experience a culture outside of the United States, and maybe to use that knowledge to venture into international business.

Research

As an entrepreneurship major, I would love to do some kind of research in the business sector. Something that fascinates me is the ebb and flow of the economy, what causes this cycle, and especially how we can predict it. With better understanding of the economic cycle we can be better prepared for future recessions or depressions.

Future Endeavors

Currently, I plan on majoring in Entrepreneurship, and starting my own real estate firm. I would like to buy and sell real estate, manage rental properties, and hopefully move into the commercial sector with commercial real estate.
