How was your experience at NC State University?

In one word? Transformative!

What would you say is your biggest accomplishment during your time at NC State?

I’m most proud of having done as many things as I could possibly fit in just four years — getting involved, studying hard, partying, meeting people. But if I had to be specific, it’s between graduating summa cum laude with two degrees and building truly meaningful friendships.

What are your plans post graduation?

In this order: relax and go to the beach, see family, continue research, take technical courses, apply for graduate school somewhere different!

Do you have any advice for current or incoming international students?

Enjoy the moment! Everyone is always telling us that our decisions now need to be made with our future in mind. But if you take one step at a time and relish your current accomplishments instead of focusing on what’s next, you’ll see that you’ll be able to enjoy your time here at lot more — and be more successful too!
