Through these roles, I have experienced navigating complex problems to develop meaningful resolutions by maintaining effective communication, emphasizing a desire to be challenged and leading by example. After receiving the Unsung Hero award for my commitment to go beyond the call of duty in MOB, my intellectual curiosity sparked the creation and implementation of new signage and organization for food events to promote sustainable food waste, leading to my recognition as the Executive Board Member of the Year the following year. The honors I am grateful to receive came with my commitment to be dependable and dedicated to the success of organizations I am part of, which I hope to bring to organizations I join after Dickinson.

Those memories and friendships will undoubtedly last a lifetime.
   
Another source of defining experience for me at Dickinson was my time studying abroad in Bologna, Italy. This was my first time ever leaving the United States and it was truly life-changing. It taught me to be courageous, empathetic and curious.

During my internship experiences, especially as a service contracts analyst at Olympus and a summer analyst at Macquarie, I discovered my interest in data analytics.
