Favorite BU memory?
Playing light-up frisbee with my roommates late at night on Nickerson field during the last months of the year.
Why do you Ambass?
I felt that it was a great opportunity to become more familiar with all aspects of the school, while also practicing my interpersonal and public speaking skills.
What is one piece of advice you would give for new ambassadors?
Don’t be afraid to slow things down and speak freely about your personal stories and experiences at BU instead of rattling off the facts. It may seem less professional to talk about silly personal aspects of the school, but if they are important to you, then a shared relevant personal experience can have much more of an impact on a student’s decision to attend BU than hearing a comprehensive list of all Questrom concentrations ever will. Just take a deep breath, and let your personality as a BU student take over. Your families will recognize and appreciate it.
Favorite study spot on campus?
5th floor of Mugar
What’s the strangest thing that’s happened to you on vacation?
My sisters and I paid 1$ for the key to a gate in Costa Rica that led to a hidden waterfall. We ended up losing the key in the river while swimming, and we weren’t sure how this bit of news would be received back at the tiny isolated shack where we obtained it. The shack had a complete vantage point on the only exit from the land, so we had to trek through the jungle for a place to cross the river and climb the fence to escape. It was quite an experience.
There is nothing better than a bit of garageband song making at the end of a long, stressful day. Maybe one day I’ll go platinum.
CEO of a large tissue engineering corporation, delivering custom 3D-printed organs to all in need, leading the efforts to assemble the first tissue engineered human being. I promise that I will not use my powers for evil, but I do want to be standing in the room when it awakes for the first time.
