What is your biggest fear? My biggest fear is being boring. I’m always conscious of how others are feeling around me and sometime I feel personally responsible for how much fun they are having or what mood they are in. However, I have realized that I simply need to be myself and other will accept me for who I am.
Sum up yourself in three words. I am a passionate, compassionate, and ambitious young woman.
What is the one thing you wish someone had told you about college life that you had to find out on your own? If you go to college in a city, you have to walk a lot more than you think!
What do you want to be when you grow up and why? I would like to be a broker or quant on Wall Street. I think this is a very high risk fast paced job where I can learn something new everyday and be excited to come to work every morning.
Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience. My single most favorite moment from my Distinguished Young Woman experience was sitting around the fire at Camp Grace sharing some of our most personal and difficult struggles. Each one of us shared a very intimate difficulty we faced and through this process we became much more accepting, understanding, and tight-knit as a group. This experience made me realize that each person has a story—full of obstacles and hardships—and to be a good friend is to listen and appreciate each individual for who they are, what they have been through, and for having the courage to share her story.
