“I’ve learned so much in the classroom while at Stanford, but even more about how to deal with adversity and make difficult life decisions. I’ve grown a lot just from being around so many outstanding people on a daily basis, and I don’t think I would have made it through these past four years without the support of my friends. Ironically, just as I’m about to finish, I feel more equipped than ever to take advantage of all of the tremendous opportunities here, but I know that this passion for life-long learning and building relationships that Stanford has given me will serve me well in the future.”


“A lot of my favorite Stanford memories happened at Stanford Stadium where I got to cover the football team for The Daily and the campus radio station for the past three years. It still hasn’t sunk in that I got to witness a significant portion of the biggest games in school history over the past four years with some of the best seats in the house. There’s also no feeling quite like walking around on the field after a big win with the crowd long gone and soaking it all in.”
