What is your favorite part of TES?
My favorite part of TES is working with students who are motivated and dedicated to the project they’r working on. Working with TES to help them find other students and innovative ways to overcome their obstacles is extremely rewarding.
How did you get into entrepreneurship?
I became interested in entrepreneurship after meeting several students who were starting their own companies or breaking ground in their area of study. I learned more from them in a short period of time than anywhere else so I became very interested in what they were doing.
Do you have advice for Tufts students who are interested in entrepreneurship?
Jump right in! Take an ELS class, come to a TES meeting, start your company and ask your fellow Jumbos and professors for help.
Are you a part of any other groups on campus?
I am a member of the Tufts Skydiving Club.
What is your favorite thing about Tufts?
Students and teachers. Both have expanded my view of education and the world.
