Why did you choose ESTEEM?

I choose to come to ESTEEM to learn what it takes to lead a highly effective tech startup or organization. Also, I was amazed by the unique community here at ESTEEM and Notre Dame, and knew it would be an incredible professional and personal learning experience.

What is your Capstone Project and why are you excited about it?

This capstone project is focused on generating international B2B expansion insights for satellite internet technology, specifically investigating opportunities for this technology in Latin American and European markets. Satellite internet technology has powerful potential to bridge the digital divide by extending connectivity to remote regions worldwide, as well as providing backup internet connectivity for critical business operations. This project will deliver actionable insights that can inform and guide this expansion strategy. To achieve this goal, the student will conduct comprehensive research across various industries within these regions. Furthermore, the student will explore potential distribution partnerships with the aim of empowering businesses with seamless connectivity and contributing to global progress in building a more connected future.

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM?

After ESTEEM I plan on working in the tech or biotech industry. My aspiration is to work with inspiring individuals on exciting technology, with the ultimate goal of leading a cutting-edge startup of my own in the future. I look forward to learning how to build a value-based organization committed to using the power of technology for the benefit of the community.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I love to run, paint, ski and play piano! I also love board games, and I am an overly enthusiastic player of Mario Kart Wii!
