Favorite Sports Memory:
- My favorite sports memory is my sophomore year of high school when my team went to the state tournament for the first time in many years. We were the underdogs in the regional tournament and pulling out so many consecutive wins with that team was something that I look back on as truly priceless.

Favorite Moment as an MIT Student-Athlete:
- The entire NCAA tournament my freshman year. The team did so well and every moment was so cherished by everyone. Everyone on the team was on the same page and persevered with a fighting spirit that ultimately led us very far. I will never forget that team and that season.

- Majoring in economics and computer science with a concentration in developmental economics
- Interned at CaixaBank in Barcelona
- Worked at the startup Zippi in Rio de Janeiro
- Interned as a data scientist at Intertrust Technologies in Silicon Valley
- Worked with the BRECA group in Lima, Peru

- Sigma Kappa sorority
- Maseeh Hall peer mentor

Why I Chose MIT:
- When faced with the option of choosing where to attend college, I realized that I needed to pick the one that maximized opportunities for me down the road and that was ultimately MIT. After visiting, I realized that MIT offered me the perfect balance of outstanding academics and competitive athletics. MIT is full of people that will help you, inspire you, and push you to reach all of your goals and the personal growth that I saw in the older players was exactly what I wanted to strive to be at the end of my 4 years.
