“As I reflect on my final year at Indiana University, I am grateful for all the experiences I was able to take part in and the people that accompanied me along the way. The school year kicked off with a reunion of the Marching Hundred after a long hiatus. I reprised my role as a snare drummer, and throughout the first semester I enjoyed supporting the football team and playing for events around the Bloomington community. This was capped off by an awesome opportunity to play with the drumline at the College Football National Championship in Indianapolis, an experience I will never forget. During the basketball season, I continued playing bass guitar with the pep band and was able to travel with both the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams on their respective NCAA tournament runs in Portland, Oregon, and Bridgeport, Connecticut. Additionally, I kept myself busy tutoring, hanging out with friends, and maintaining excellent grades.

After a successful college career, I graduated in May with highest academic distinction with degrees in Honors Mathematics and Economics along with a certificate in Management. I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to attend such a wonderful university. Recently, I have moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where I started a full-time job at a Healthcare Software company. I have enjoyed the first few weeks as a new-hire, and I am excited to see what the future holds!”
