About Me

I attend Althoff Catholic High School as a senior. As an underclassman, I never thought I would be interested in business. However, after hearing great things about the CEO Program from the upperclassmen I looked up to, I knew I had to apply. Throughout this experience, I hope to get out of my comfort zone and make lasting connections that will contribute to future success.


At school, I am involved in a few different clubs and organizations, such as NHS, but I am the most dedicated to my position as captain of the cross country and track teams. As I’ve grown throughout high school, sports have become an important part of my identity, something which I hope to continue in college. I am currently considering numerous research universities in California and Oregon where I can run and pursue a degree in STEM.
