What has been an academic highlight for you within your major? 

I got the great opportunity to lecture and administer a class in machine learning through my project team Cornell Data Science. Being on the other side of the lecture hall led to a greater appreciation for both the subject and the faculty. 

What is something you have been involved with outside of academics that is meaningful to you? 

I beatbox with an a cappella group on campus, and have done so through all four years of my Cornell education. I am very grateful for the memories and meaningful relationships I have built over time. 

What are your post-graduation goals? 

I will be working as a data scientist in finance after graduation. In the long-term, I hope I can leverage my academic skillset and post-graduation experiences to help create tangible social change.
