Best IU experience so far: Snowball fight in the winter with friends from the dorm.
One thing I want to do before I leave Bloomington/campus: Get into every building at IU at least once.
Greatest life lesson: Treat people as you want to be treated.
My greatest role model and why: Muhammad Yunus, he created micro credit to help poor people who have no collateral to get a loan. He created a concept that has the potential to actually solve poverty.
Favorite movie and why: Pursuit of Happiness, reason: You donít usually get what you want but if you want it bad enough and work hard enough for it, you will deserve it.
Favorite class at IU and why: Honors Business Communication Ė C205. I learned how to convey what I know to people and listen to them. Business Communication provides me the tool to connect to people and in this business world, it is a crucial one.
Something Iím really passionate about: Microfinance and Micro Credit. Poverty is unfair and I want to do something about it.
Something that would surprise people about me or a fun fact: I snowboarded down from the peak of Vail Mountain, Colorado, after 2 weeks of snowboarding. It didnít end up very pretty; I got a few concussions.
