Fun Fact

I am training for a six-miler and half marathon. 

Why did you choose UGA?

Nine years ago, when I came to this country, it was my stepdad's dream for me to go to UGA but later on it became my aspiration to come to UGA. Without realizing it, everything I dream of I found here: the most amazing people, limitless opportunities, and personal growth.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

Late night studying, 6:00 a.m. swim training, longboarding at the IM fields, and meeting some of the most incredible people in the world.
