If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go, and why?
As a child I was always fascinated by the stories of Greek mythology, so I would have to say Greece.
What is your favorite musical genre?
I like EDM, which stands for Electronic Dance Music. The Chainsmokers are a great example.
Are you a morning or night person?
Definitely a night person. I haven’t gone to bed before 2am in the last five years. Stern trained me on how to do that!
What is your favorite memory from your time at Stern?
It’s a tie between when I was elected Student Body President and when I visited Vietnam through Stern’s International Studies Program. Both were incredible experiences.
Why do you choose to stay engaged with Stern as an alumnus?
I was brought up with values and morals that reflect the giving back attitude. When I arrived in the United States for the first time to attend school, I was immediately welcomed by the Stern community. I never felt like an outsider because the people I met along the way were so kind and generous. I got so much out of my four years at Stern, I couldn’t imagine not staying engaged and giving back to the School.
