  • Why did you pick your major and what’s your dream job? 

    • I loved that I get to solve problems using technology and I enjoy helping companies find solutions to their concerns. My dream job is to work for Vogue.

    • Don't be scared to just try, whether it be applying for a job or joining a new organization. With online courses, Google Calendar has to be your best friend. 

  • Where have you interned, what did you do, and how was your experience? 

    • I interned for PwC this summer for two weeks. I got to work with Tableau, enjoyed networking with associates, managers and partners and got to learn the values of PwC. It was amazing!

  • What is your favorite part about being a peer advisor? 

    • I get to make an impact in someone's academic career.
