"I realized early on that I wanted a career in finance due to my fascination with mathematics and psychology."

As children, we're all asked the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How did you answer?

Corporate Attorney

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

I realized early on that I wanted a career in finance due to my fascination with mathematics and psychology. At the age of 18, I secured an internship with a bulge-bracket Wall Street firm. This accomplishment was unprecedented as the program, called Sponsors for Educational Opportunity ("SEO"), was targeting rising seniors.

How did you get your big breaks?

In order to get a big break you must "throw your hat in the ring." Had I not I applied to Sponsors Educational Opportunity (SEO), I may have not experienced the other career breakthroughs that I have experienced.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Work as hard you can. Now obviously that does not mean 24 hours a day. Work-life balance is equally important. Also, make sure you have fully assessed yuor personality and have chosen a career path that is conducive to your strengths.

What have you learned from your experience?

From my experience the most important lesson that I have learned is that Corporate America is smaller than it seems. Be nice to everyone and it will help you in the long run.

What most excites you about your job right now?

Currently, I am a student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Being back at school is great!

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

Happiness
