I am beyond excited to join Mogul's wonderful community as the President of Brooklyn Tech's Mogul Chapter in New York. Looking through the endless list of amazing women on Mogul, I cannot be more inspired to continue pushing the cause for female empowerment. I basically see Mogul as a guilt-free, epic version of Facebook that is connecting people in the best possible way- through shared missions.
My personal mission- aside from FINALLY finishing watching all seasons of "The Office"- is to help students realize their potential outside of the classroom. My friends and I organize community service projects, interviews with amazing women (including Tiffany Pham,) and provide job/internship placement for students through Gifts of Awesome. As the founder of GOA, I cannot be more thrilled to share exciting new opportunities with y'all!
When I'm not scrolling through my Mogul feed, you can find me playing piano or guitar, visiting colleges (it's become an extra-curricular for me at this point,) or attempting to learn Italian.
I'll be kicking off my senior year of High School with Mogul, and I hope that I can get to know as many of you as possible!
