Hometown: Bothell, WA

Graduation Year: 2012

Major: Global Studies

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be? Of course, I'll always consider Haiti my second home and I can't wait to visit it again, but I would love to see the majesty of Africa. There's so much that I don't know about that region, I'm looking forward to experiencing that area and the richness of the people. Something to look forward to, I suppose.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now? In 10 years, I see myself facilitating investments in the developing world, and working on policy on a global scale.  I think people are inherently good, but sometimes their ideas don't always show that. With the right policy shifts, this world can work for more of our fellow citizens. But then again, who knows? And that's the beauty of it all.
