Career plans: I hope to work in consulting for a couple years, domestically and abroad. I also intend to pursue graduate school, either for a master's in business administration or master's in engineering management. Long term, I would transition to a project management role and lead diverse teams to be on the cutting edge of innovation. Coordinating cross-functional work, improving team collaboration, and inspiring others to lead at the edge of their comfort zone will translate to large scale impact.
Most impactful experience: Serving as Vice President for Gamecock Consulting Club my senior year was an incredible experience. I led the recruitment of new members and educational development of current members. I restructured the entire recruiting process, creating a more objective system for the accessibility of all majors and backgrounds. Inspiring others to follow nontraditional paths in pursuit of their passions is what drives me and consolidating business opportunities for other engineers was fulfilling.
Best part of the Top Scholars program: The community is the best part about being a Top Scholar. The people I have met and the friends I have made along the way have truly shaped my college experience. Beyond being a group of like-minded individuals with the intellectual drive connecting us all, this is a community of support and kindness. Struggling a lot in high school, I never dreamed that I would be able to make such strong connections. I am graduating having become the person I was meant to be because of the Top Scholar program.
UofSC Story: In October of my senior year, I worked my first alumni and prospective student event in Charleston as an Honors Ambassador. This is where I was able to meet alumni of the Honors College, young and old, learning through their experiences how the Honors College has grown and changed throughout time. During that event, I saw a flash of my future. Drinking a glass of champagne with other Honors College alumni, a year ahead, two years behind, joking about how Honeycomb wasn't as good when we were on campus. An alma mater connects you to others in a way that I did not truly understand until then. At UofSC I have discovered impactful friendships, my individuality and most importantly, a lifelong community. This complete sense of belonging is indescribable, and I look forward to giving back as much as I can in the future.
