Class of 2023

What are you most proud of any why?

I think that I am most proud of the diverse range of projects I have worked on and the various fields I have worked in. All my experiences, whether it be working as a German tutor, a data analyst, an IT guy, or a dishwasher have taught me that value of hard work is universal and that the more you put in, the more you get out.
