Class of 2018-2019

Tufts University, 2018

Why I chose ESTEEM:

While I studied engineering as an undergrad, I knew I never wanted to be an engineer as I always had enjoyed business more. ESTEEM was an obvious choice for me after Tufts because it allows me to combine my people skills and knack for business with my love for science and engineering.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

While I'm not entirely sure what Industry I'd like to work in after ESTEEM, I enjoy working in fast pace environments, helping to build successful and sustainable businesses. 

What I like to do when I'm not working:

Outside of work and school, I enjoy sitting on the beach, swimming, cycling, skiing, and spending quality time with friends.

And finally:

I'm so thankful for the opportunity to study at Notre Dame in the ESTEEM program. Spending the majority of my day with 44 extroverted engineers and scientists is not only a unique experience, but also a humbling one. My peers make me think and then think again, but it's all for the better and part of what makes ESTEEM unique!
