What has been your most impactful class?

Although my career seems to align more with my finance major, my most impactful class was one I took for my second major in international studies. American Foreign Policy (HIST 385) with Patrick Allitt showed me how little all of those years of American history in middle and high school taught me about the theory behind some of today's most polarizing political debates and fascinating geopolitical fronts.

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

It has to be Songfest. A lot of guys in my freshman dorm hall thought that rehearsing a singing and dancing routine would be silly, but I decided to do it and the experience was nothing short of electric. We performed diss songs aimed towards the other freshman residence halls in front of 2000 of our classmates in the gym - even though Alabama Hall didn't take home the win, it was a moment I'll never forget.

My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Everything. Whether it be going to Midtown and walking beautiful Piedmont Park, checking out a new neighborhood to try a new restaurant, or going out with friends, I love everything Atlanta has to offer.

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

Either at the Goizueta Business School between classes chatting with friends, studying on the 1st floor of the Woodruff Library, or at the Kappa Alpha fraternity house. As a senior, the beauty of living on campus is my whole college world is within a 15 minute walking radius.
