After graduating in 2008, I attended Colby College as a Posse Foundation Scholar, majoring in Economics. During my time at Colby, I was the CEO of Colby Student Investment Association (largest student organization by membership and by dedicated endowed fund of $200K), Student President of the Colby Entrepreneurial Alliance, a Hall Staff, and the Student Manager of Pugh Center of Intercultural Communications. I truly enjoyed my experience socially and academically and was named George F. Baker Scholar for Committment in a Career in Business and Entrepreneurship and the recipient of the Student Affairs Award for Diversity and Human Difference. After graduation, I spent most of my time at BlackRock's Strategic Planning & Finance organization serving as the business unit CFO for Aladdin Product Group, our internal software development organization. I collaborate with business unit heads, COO's, Human Resources, and General Accounting to prioritize strategic initiatives and identify cost-saving opportunities - it has been exciting to be a trusted finance partner and yield business strategy along side with management. Outside of work, I have continued my passion of giving back through educational initiatives: I serve as the National Director of Scholarship Fund for the National Association of Asian American Professionals, the VP for the Harvard Business School Summer Venture in Management Program Alumni Association, and member of Colby's Alumni Council. In fall 2015, I will be attending Kellogg School of Management (Northwester) to pursue my MBA as a Posse
