Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
I chose to attend Vanderbilt because I really enjoyed my visit. I liked all the guys on the team, the campus was beautiful, and it is obviously a highly revered university.
What are your career goals?
I hope I am able to start my own company someday.
What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
It takes a lot of discipline and sacrifice. Especially as a student-athlete, you have to sacrifice a lot of the time to be able to get good grades at this school.
How do you manage your demanding schedule?
I try to be organized and have things planned out ahead of time so I know what I have to do and when I have to do it.
What is your ritual before taking a test?
I don’t really have one. I just try to show up a little early and have everything ready to go so I am not stressed out for no reason.
What is your favorite quote?
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
