What has been your driving force for enrolling in your degree program?

It started back in high school when I scored a world highest in accounting for my A-levels and I realized learning different forms of numbers is my favorite way to use my time.

Why did you choose UNC Charlotte over other universities?

UNC Charlotte had the most diverse options of subjects to choose from especially the combination I was looking for, for major and concentration. I also got immense help from UNC Charlotte while I was working on the application to answer all my questions and help me navigate through it, which made me feel this was the right place. The campus itself really did stand out for me as well.

What has been the best part of your academic experience so far? 

I have learned how to code last semester. This was my first time with anything coding, so it was very exciting.

How would you describe UNC Charlotte to someone considering a graduate program?

A place that feels like home and there are always people out there willing to help you make your transition smooth and easy.

What do you hope to accomplish this year in your role as an ambassador?

I want to help other students make their transition to UNC Charlotte as easy and smooth as possible. I want them to enjoy their whole experience and not be overwhelmed. I would want them to know there are always people very happy and willing to help them through anything at all, be it choosing a course or their mental health. I really want them to know that they are not alone.
