Accounting and Information Systems Major
Home Town:  Castro Valley, CA

What excites you about becoming a Fellow?
I'm excited to get the opportunity to apply my skills and knowledge in a way that has a positive social, political, and/or economic impact on my community.

Favorite LSB class and why?
So far, my favorite class in the business school would have to be my Intro to Financial Accounting class with Professor Paisley. It was one of the first classes I took that really challenged me to fully understand the material rather than simply memorize information. Professor Paisley made the class interesting by telling stories from when he worked in industry, despite the course's rather mundane topics. The class was also the starting point for my interest in the accounting profession, which has provided me with many new opportunities I never thought I would be presented with.

Favorite quote
“I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
