Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in San Jose, California, and have lived here my whole life. My interest in business began in fifth grade when I would sell handcrafted, braided lanyards to my classmates during recess and lunch. As a current freshman at USC with a Business Administration major, I am seeking professional experience in marketing and operations, while also fully open to exploring other fields of business. In my free time, I like to go on hikes, play Tetris (pretty old game, I know), research skincare, watch TikToks, and explore new restaurants in the Bay Area.

Interesting Factoid

I drove over four hours to buy a pair of Jordans.
