About Me

I am independent and innovative. I enjoy being aware of multiple disciplines and learning appeals to me as it is not only a discovery process of the art but of myself. My passion is tennis and I play it extensively.

Campus and Community Involvement

I have volunteered the last two summers and I was in NHS for Klein High School and volunteered making chemicals for the Chemistry Department for my high school. I play a lot of tennis as stated before and am playing several professional tournaments this year.

Awards and Honors

I have the National Merit Scholarship in addition to Tier one. I was in National Honor Society for my high school and got the Superman award for high school tennis in 2010.

Study Abroad

The French classes I have taken have intrigued me in the French culture and people. I am interested in studying in France so I can become more fluent in French and aware of their environment.


I am interested in analyzing the variations in different financial markets that are based on different currencies.

Future Endeavors

I am going to further my Business education with an MBA.
