Major: Economics

Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
Great school, met amazing people on visits, actually never thought I would come because it is so close to home but ended up working out with the scholarship offer I received the day before Signing Day.

What are your career goals?
Not totally sure yet – trying to decide which type of graduate school to pursue next, have to determine a career before I can figure out a goal.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
Time management is very important, knowing your limitations and how much you can expect to do on a given night, knowing your practice/game schedule. Plan ahead, don’t get behind,
don’t allow yourself to get stressed out.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?
Take it one day at a time. Be aware of what’s coming up and don’t let yourself get too far behind. Stay ahead of schedule, work hard in everything you do.

What is your ritual before taking a test?
Don’t really have one – study, show up, take test.

What is your favorite quote?
“Do or do not, there is no try.” by Jedi Master Yoda
