What drew you to Babson?
I chose Babson College because the more I looked into it, I knew it was the perfect school for me. I am able to get an amazing business education from the top entrepreneurship school while pursuing my other passions in liberal arts classes.
What does being a Blank School Scholar mean to you?
The Blank Leadership Scholarship means I am able to use business and entrepreneurship to have an impact on the community around me.
Why does the world need entrepreneurial leadership?
The world needs people who are willing to take risks while being flexible in the ever-changing business environment. In addition, I feel it is also equally important to use your business to positively affect your community.
Of Blank’s six leadership qualities, which ones do you most identify with?
Lead By Example. When creating my business, Twin Skin, my goal was to encourage others to become more environmentally-conscious and switch to alternatives that were better for the environment.
Give Back to Others. I think it’s important that no matter what you’re doing, whether it’s starting a business or something else—that you do it in a way that comes back to your community and society as a whole.
What do you like to do for fun outside the classroom?
Normally, you can find me just hanging out with friends or family or my two pets. And, during quarantine, I picked up painting and new crafts, which is something I did when I was younger.
