Major: M.S. in Economics (Finishing the B.S. - M.S. program)
Post-graduation plans: After graduation, I am going to work for Deloitte as a Transfer Pricing Consultant in the Atlanta office.
Proudest Achievement at Tech:
Other than graduating, I think my proudest achievement is helping to expand the PLUS program here to include Economics courses. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to help future classes of students do better in intro to Econ courses, and it's nice to know that I am leaving something concrete and positive behind here at GT.
Post-graduation plans: I have accepted a position as a Business Intelligence Analyst working under US Oncology at McKesson.
What was the biggest challenge you faced at Georgia Tech, and how did you overcome it?
A challenge I faced as a student at Georgia Tech was being a transfer student. I went to Georgia State as a freshman, and after leaving, I missed my established group of friends there. It was a bit like being a first year all over again, for example having to learn where everything is on campus. I missed out on many freshman traditions like the rat cap. I did not feel a connection to the school.
The way I was able to overcome feeling like an outsider on campus was getting a job as a student assistant for the School of Economics. The School of Economics became my community. I had the good fortune to work with a truly wonderful faculty and staff that brought me great joy. Dante, Jyldyz, and Laura deserve special mention for treating me like family and being incredible mentors.
What is your proudest achievement from your time at Georgia Tech?
My proudest achievement at Georgia Tech is working on research with Professor Brewer to the extent that I was offered a co-author credit on a paper in progress. Collaborating with him has been a treasured learning experience.
