Family ties to Texas A&M:

None- I’m a first-gen student!

I chose to attend Texas A&M because…

The traditions and the Aggie Spirit, but also because of how kind every Aggie is. In addition, I also knew how valuable the Aggie Network is and would be for my future!

My favorite things to do on campus are…

Going to Aggie Park and getting ice cream and listening to the piano players in the flag room.

When I have free time, I like…

To read romance books, hang out with my friends, and try new food places.

The craziest thing I’ve done is…

Snorkel in the middle of the ocean.

My favorite place to study is…

4th floor of Evans

My favorite ECON professor is…

Dr. Craig Schulman

My favorite part of being an Economics student is…

The fact that we get to learn about real-world concepts that apply to anything and everything in our life and statistical analyses are also integrated!

If I could share an afternoon with anyone, I would love to share it with…

Taylor Swift.

If I knew I could not fail, I would…

Become a baker and win the Great British Bake Off.

If money was not a consideration, I would love to…

Eliminate poverty and world hunger, among other social issues.

What is your passion and how are you committed to pursuing it?

My passion has always been to help others, whether big or small because you never know what others are going through and how your actions can impact others. I always help my friends and any other people that I can with whatever they need help with. In the future, I want to be able to further my reach with my job, continue helping my friends, and make philanthropical contributions to society.

After graduation, I plan to…

Take a three-week trip with my friends to places around Asia and Europe, and then start my career in whatever city I end up in!

The one Texas A&M experience I will always remember is…

Losing my voice watching the Alabama game last fall
