Why I Am Serving on the Alumni Board of Directors:
Wheaton College offered many resources that allowed me to explore my academic passions and build my career prospects as an international student in the US. I am acutely aware of how these resources influenced my life. For that reason, I am strongly motivated to contribute to the Wheaton community by making sure that the opportunities I received continue to be available for everyone.
Wheaton Influences in My Life:
The multidisciplinary nature of Wheaton’s in-class and out-of-class education changed the way I see the world and approach problems today. Wheaton offered a set of ideal opportunities to build long standing friendships, multidisciplinary academic perspectives on real world problems, and career prospects through internships and grant opportunities. These experiences still shape my personal and professional endeavors today.
I love traveling, cooking and – most importantly – eating. I learned how to combine all these while cooking with friends at the UWC Davis International House during my time at Wheaton.
