BSBA ‘25 
Class Year:

Hometown: Marietta, GA  

What's something on your bucket list? 

I want to see the Northern Lights in Norway. I've seen so many pictures online, so it's something I've always wanted to experience. 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Switzerland. I used to be scared of heights, but I was able to overcome the fear by paragliding in Interlaken! The scenic views in Switzerland are truly amazing. 

Favorite family tradition: 

Raksha Bandhan, where sisters tie a rakhi every year in August around their brothers' wrists which symbolizes the eternal love, bond, and support of the brother-sister relationship. My cousin sister actually weaves an orange and black thread together by hand every year, since my favorite NFL team is the Bengals! 

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

Getting into Georgia Tech is my proudest accomplishment! It wasn't a school I really considered going to until I actually got in, but it was the best decision I ever made. 

What did you want to be when you were small?  

I wanted to be a pilot. I played so many mobile app airplane games growing up. 

My life story in exactly one sentence:  

A son of parents who immigrated to America during their teenage and adult years with little to no money and worked hard to live the American Dream to give my siblings and I a better life. 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

Antico's. They have the best pizza! 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Thai basil chicken with Thai tea. Nothing can beat it.
