In the Shidler College of Business, I am currently a Shidler Global Leader, the President of the Inter-Business Council, and Co-Director of Fundraising for Delta Sigma Pi: Rho Chi professional fraternity. In the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, I am currently a CTAHR Ambassador and a member in the honor society Phi Upsilon Omicron.

The biggest takeaway I have learned from college is that taking chances and being uncomfortable allows you to grow, will open up new opportunities for you, and will ultimately help you to maximize appreciation for your present experience. Don’t be afraid, try it!
