Which groups/sorority/organization are you currently affiliated with?

    Currently I am applying to fellowships for my sophomore year in Baruch. I am also considering apply to a non-profit, marketing, or photography club. All of which are my primary interest and I would like to further expand in college.


Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

   10 years from now I hope to have my Bachelor’s in Digital Marketing and Master’s in Marketing. I want to eventually work for google and then start by making my own non-profit. I would like to start a nonprofit that helps disadvantaged kids in third world countries receive an education. Primarily, 10 years from now I hope to be in good health and happy.


What are some of your bucket list items/places?

My bucket list items consist of:
~Tree Gliding

~Traveling with my Best Friend

~Learning another Language and Culture different from mine


What is one of your proudest accomplishments to date?

    My proudest accomplishment was becoming Chief Executive Officer of my High School's Virtual Enterprise Program. This was the top tier for business at my High School. In addition, this program meant competing with other high schools throughout the country. Each school presented a business plan and annual report and mocking a company and stimulating the virtual economy. This is one of my most fond accomplishments not because of the title but because it reaffirmed my business aspirations and allowed me to make mistakes and learn from them.


If you could sit and have coffee with one celebrity dead or alive who would it be?

     I would sit and have coffee with Harry Styles. He is iconic, both in his solo career and his career with 1D. I was fortunate enough to go to his concert and witness my favorite star. One of the many reasons I would like to sit down with him is because he was someone who my best friend and I bonded over. In addition, throughout my freshman year of high school I admired him so much, he was my phone case. Harry Styles was a staple piece throughout my adolescence.
