What is your major and why did you decide to join BAP?
"I am currently pursuing a double-major in Finance and Accounting. I decided to join Beta Alpha Psi to get more involved on-campus. Also, an honors business organization like Beta Alpha Psi really sparked my interest, as I wanted to be involved with a business organization and ultimately prepare myself for a career within the industry."
What has been the greatest benefit(s) you've received through BAP?
"Beta Alpha Psi has developed myself from being a shy, naive Sophomore into a confident, young business professional. This development is still a work-in-process, but I truly owe it all to Beta Alpha Psi for providing me with a foundation of support and instilling the qualities to succeed in the rapidly changing world of business."
When will you be graduating and what are your plans for the future?
"I will be graduating in May of 2019, and my plan for the future is to be a Financial Analyst for an Investment Bank in the Greater New York City area."
Are you involved in any extracurriculars outside of BAP and ODU?
"Besides my involvement with Beta Alpha Psi, I am also a member of the Finance Club, as well as a team-member for Old Dominion’s CFA team, and a team-member for Old Dominion’s Bloomberg trading team."
What advice would you give to new members and candidates?
"My advice to new members and candidates is to find out what kind of life you want to live early in your college career. College is the time to learn more about yourself and once you find something you’re passionate about, give it your best shot and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Most importantly, stay proactive with your goals and stay positive. Life can be a truly humbling experience. A wise man once said, “Anything worth having, doesn’t come easy.”"
