Hometown: Orange County, California


Hi everyone! I’m so excited that you’re considering coming to school here. It seems like just yesterday I was in your shoes, about to make the best decision of my life - attending Michigan! I truly believe that there is no other university that has a greater intersection of academics, social life/extracurriculars, and athletics. Here, I am constantly filled with pride by the amount of love my classmates and peers have for this school.

A little about my own journey here - when I came to Michigan, I was certain I would be attending medical school. After taking some scary STEM classes, though, I decided that it wasn’t quite the right fit for me. I spent some time considering a path to law school, but something in my heart was telling me to apply to transfer across campus into Ross. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and felt confident about my prior experiences at Michigan, but I still figured it was a long shot. Nevertheless, I submitted my application, then tried my best to completely forget I applied at all. However, in July of 2020, I found out that I was accepted! The opportunities that Ross has presented to me since are immeasurable.

Now, I am pursuing a five-year dual-degree in Ross and LSA, focusing specifically on Marketing and Communications. Ideally, I will be able to transfer this education into the sports and entertainment sector. Although it took me some time to figure out exactly what I wanted to study, I have never been more certain that this is the right fit for me. Being a part of Ross truly provides me with both the inspiration and confidence to work to achieve great things.

I am so happy to be here and talk to you about my experiences. I’m serious when I tell you to Go Blue - I promise you won’t regret it. :)
