What is your dream job?
To work in international business and law and work for a U.S.-based company in a foreign country. I want to help mold two cultures together and be able to use experiences from traveling to help bridge cultural differences.
Best memory from UMKC:
Studying in Spain for two months.
Favorite place you’ve traveled:
Prague or Budapest. I met a lot of great people in those places.
Any place you’d like to visit that you haven’t?
Southeast Asia and Australia.
What’s the one thing you’d never do?
Sky dive. I hate heights. Even though I do a lot of traveling, flying is my least favorite part.
What’s your favorite way to relax?
Working out. I like to do some cardio on the bike, lift weights and get a lot of stress out of my system and listen to good music while I do it.
What scares you the most?
The uncertainty of moving to a new city where I don’t know anyone or have any connections.
Quality you look for in a friend:
The opportunity to speak at the Kauffman Foundation earlier this semester. I spoke in front of the chancellor, Dean Tan, city council people and business people.
