As I watched the events of 9/11 unfold, I strongly felt the need to serve my country. I decided to do so by attending the United States Military Academy and becoming an Officer in the Army. I've gotten the opportunity to deploy and lead soldiers, which is an experience that I will forever cherish. After five years of service, I am now transistioning to a civilian career. I've wanted to be an investment banker as early as high school, and I'm excited to begin a new path leading to that career. I will begin my transition by earning my MBA at the NYU Stern School of Business. I plan to specialize in corporate finance, banking, and finance. I hope to earn an internship, and ultimately a full time position, at a bulge bracket investment bank in New York City.
