I grew up in a small town, where I was instilled with the importance of robust relationships and a sense of responsibility towards others. Witnessing the community uplift its members instilled in me a desire to succeed and shaped my work ethic.

My path led me to UCLA, where I am pursuing a Business Economics degree with a minor in Accounting. After graduation, I intend to become a financial advisor and attain a CFA (Chartered Financial Advisor) certification. This ambition is not merely a career choice; it’s driven by a genuine interest in finance and accounting and a desire to assist families in effective retirement planning. Beyond academics, I spend my time on weightlifting and nutrition.

As I navigate my academic career at UCLA, I try my hardest to maintain a well-rounded lifestyle to ensure my success in the long run. This integration extends beyond personal growth and a fulfilling lifestyle to my professional aspirations as well. I believe that anything is possible with balance, and I try every day to become a better version of myself than the day before.
