community service work and dedication to spreading the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout my campus and community. The next big plan is to take on a business internship over the summer in Singapore!

At the University of Oregon, I am a research assistant in the brain development and social cognition labs, a business technology lab consultant, and an active member of my school’s professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi. Recently, I was elected to serve as the new Vice President of Marketing on the executive board of the fraternity. I really became passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship as I co-founded and became a student leader and planner of the UofO’s first Innovation Summit, an event with over 90 different innovative activities and speakers with over 400 attendees.

Additionally, I have been a private caregiver to both the elderly and disabled for almost 5 years now. My strong desires to help others continued at my internship with Rubicon International, an educational consulting and curriculum management firm in downtown Portland, where I helped schools implement a helpful platform for educators to track their school and districts curriculum and standards.

I am very motivated to continue to learn new things as I pursue my passions of creating and developing innovative projects that help people all around the world. I am very much looking forward to parterning up with a innovative company in the near future as I start my career.
