Future aspirations post-Stanford: I plan on working on the International Sales desk at Morgan Stanley's Institutional Equities Division in New York City upon graduating from Stanford. I hope to work towards a career centered around political economy and international development.

A fun fact about yourself: I am currently working on an artwork project in virtual reality that seeks to illustrate memories of distinct time periods in my life through a 3-dimensional structure composed of objects of pertinence to these epochs.
