Favorite thing about K-State:
My favorite thing about K-State is the community and the family environment that truly makes it that home away from home.

Research: "Greenness of IPO firms"
We will be looking at the greenness of firms as they undergo IPO (initial public offerings). How will this affect the reception by investors? Will it increase or decrease interest?

Favorite part of the Developing Scholars Program:
My favorite thing about DSP is the in depth learning and independent feeling you get when you find something by yourself and start connecting the dots.

Most important lesson you have learned through being an Edgerley-Franklin leader:
I have learned that even though you want change to happen, it is a process that is ever going and the more you work at it, the more it starts to become a reality. Oh and of course, you're Edgerley-Franklin family is always there for you! (:

Advice for an incoming student:
My advice for an incoming student would be to get involved and make yourself feel uncomfortable so that you can get to know new people and new ideas. Don't be afraid of failure. Give your heart and if you don't achieve what you hoped at least your whole heart was in it!

Future plans:
My future plans are to become a bilingual accountant in one of the Big 4 firms, then over time work my way up the ladder and become a Chief Financial Officer in that firm.

Fun fact:
A fun fact about me is that I cannot ride a bicycle, but want to get a motorcycle in future!
