Global Challenge: Health and Sustainability

Through exposure to diverse perspectives, multidisciplinary training, and a focus on social consciousness, I will be well-equipped to tackle the challenges of the 21st century and most importantly, make meaningful contributions to the field of engineering.


Originally from Long Island, New York, I am currently a sophomore at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering studying Business and Technology Management. My journey is fueled by an unwavering enthusiasm to harness the power of technology as a driving force behind corporate success.

My passion for technology and business goes hand in hand with my desire to make a meaningful difference in the healthcare sector. As a former hospital volunteer, I have experienced firsthand the importance of utilizing technology to improve patient care and optimize hospital operations. This experience ignited an interest in exploring the intersection between technology and the medical industry.

I am actively involved in the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers. Being a part of these organizations provides me with a platform to advocate for diversity and inclusivity in the STEM fields. I believe that diverse perspectives foster innovation, and I am committed to playing my part in creating a more equitable and supportive environment for all.

My passion for entrepreneurship drives me to be an intern and ambassador at the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute. Whether it’s a pre-seed or scaling venture, assisting startup teams is an exhilarating experience. The creative energy and drive of these entrepreneurs inspire me to explore my own entrepreneurial acumen and push the boundaries of what's possible.

Outside of my academic pursuits, I am an avid water sport and activity enthusiast. As a former rowing coxswain, I've come to cherish the tranquil embrace of water and the invaluable lessons in teamwork, precision, and leadership that it imparts.
