Before embarking on my academic journey, I served nine years of active duty as a US Army soldier. I held several duty positions focused on Sniper, Ranger, and Airborne operations. I spent a large portion of my time in the military stationed in Vicenza, Italy, under the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team. I attended Highline Community College in Washington State and submitted applications to over 9 universities using S2S and other resources available to veterans. I decided to attend Harvard University where I now study Economics. After graduation, I plan to work in Finance and hopefully make a difference in our Veterans’ lives by providing wealth management advising. For now, I look forward to my 2022 graduation and hope to add to an already outstanding organization.
