Highlight from Cornell:
The pictures tell the story. Exploring Ithaca, having a fun time during our trek to NYC, and celebrating a party in the Engineering Management room, all with my classmates.

What inspires you:
Solving everyday problems that people face is what attracted me to the Real Estate industry. Being able to influence the spaces that people live and work in positively.

Dream job: 
Real Estate ( Associate - Investment/Associate - Development/Asset Management)

Something I will miss: 
My groups from class. Amidst the hard work, there were a lot of funny jokes and memorable quotes. Plus, you never know how cool your classmates are until you get to know them in person.

I will also miss socializing in the grad lounge (351) and in the Engineering Management room (404).

Advice for students: 
Be open to the experience, the different people you'll meet, the different formats of the lectures you'll take, the different outside-class activities on offer and the different seasons that Ithaca brings.
