Class of 2019-2020
Ohio University, 2019
Why I chose ESTEEM:
I felt frustrated with the conventional route that I had planned for myself. I wanted a life/career where I can think creatively, be innovative, and really push myself out of my comfort zone. ESTEEM challenges me to think differently, and is driving me to exceed what I thought I was capable of.
My capstone project and why I'm excited about it:
I am working with PWR, an early start-up that is creating a space for pre-collegiate female athletes to develop both physically and mentally. I am excited to empower young girls to be strong, and to develop a community where our female centered program will prevent injury and increase strength.
What I hope to do after ESTEEM:
I am very interested in being apart of the start-up community. I have a strong passion for both environmental and public health issues, and I will continue to explore ideas surrounding these issues throughout this year.
What I like to do when I'm not working:
I enjoy reading existential fiction that challenges me to think in a unique way. I love listening to alternative punk music, if I could be at concerts every weekend I would be. I'm also really into strategy board games and outdoor activities.
My advice is to listen, carefully, to what makes you happy. Life is short, and making the most of our time is so important. Cheers.
