It didn’t take long for me to get involved on campus – and once I started, I went all in. President of Dance Dance Revolution Club, Vice President of Game Development Club, Treasurer for Smash Bros Club, Secretary for Breakdancing Club… and those are just my current positions. Throughout my time at RPI, I’ve worked to drastically boost the membership, visibility, equipment, and overall quality of the clubs I’ve been a part of – not only through helping them grow, but also by guiding the next generation of leadership.
Academically, I’ve been helping the GSAS curriculum grow and change with the needs of the students, and I am both the founder and director of the official GSAS Mentoring Program – a program for undergraduate upperclassmen to share their skills, give back to the department, and just generally be a positive academic and social role model to the incoming freshmen.
