    "After my freshman year, I worked at Morgan Stanley in their Investment Management division within the Portfolio solutions group. I primarily did due diligence for their real estate and infrastructure investments. The following summer after my sophomore year, I worked at Colony Capital, a REIT, in their Hotel Asset Management group. I assisted the team in property tours, cost analyses of renovations, and disposition analyses. Next summer, I will be a summer analyst at Blackstone in Real Estate Asset Management."



    "I am a part of a few organizations on campus. I am currently the New Member Educator and Social Chair for the Cornell Hedge Fund. I also am a Commissioner for the Student Activities Funding Commission. When I'm not at meetings for these organizations, I am probably at practice for my bollywood dance team, Cornell Sitara. I am also involved in my sorority, Kappa Delta. During my free time, I TA a few classes for the Hotel School and work at the Communication Center."



    "I enjoy photography, hiking, fitness, cooking, baking, and watching the TV shows Suits or Billions. I love huskies, and I hope to adopt Alaskan Malamute siblings one day with my brother. I also am the world's biggest fan of the Golden State Warriors. Fun fact: I was on TV twice at their games -- once in 2007 and once in 2017!"
