Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

Vanderbilt is the perfect mix of competitive athletics and strong academics; plus, the opportunity to experience the growing city of Nashville for four years made it the perfect place for me.

What are your career goals?

After graduation, I will be working as a Talent Consulting Analyst at Mercer in Chicago.  I hope to one day go to business school and eventually run my own social enterprise.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

Choosing to study something you really care about.  If you enjoy your classes and what you’re learning about, it’ll make life a lot easier.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

Time management is key.  I try to block out time to complete my work.  If I don’t write down a homework schedule, I’ll never get it done.

What is your ritual before taking a test?

Drinking a big cup of coffee.

What is your favorite quote?

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?’” – Winnie the Pooh
