What was your favorite part about working at OADI?

My favorite part about working at OADI is the community. I have been working at OADI since my freshman fall semester, so it feels like home to me! The people who work here and come in and out of the office have always been a central part of my Cornell experience. I always had support here, both as an employee and student, and I am so grateful for all the bonds I have made working here the past three years. 

What is your plan for after graduation?

After graduation, I will be moving to Washington D.C. to work as a Human Resources Rotational Associate at Capital One.

What are your hopes and dreams for your future?

In addition to starting my professional career in D.C., I am also excited to get involved in the amazing music and theatre scene of the city. I am a singer and performer and am excited to continue my passion for music upon graduating from Cornell. I am also looking forward to traveling!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about myself is that I competed on American Idol last year.
