In the future, I would like to continue working in the political realm. I would love to take over the family business and continue expanding our client base while maintaining the company’s work ethic and atmosphere.
You recently completed your first year at Michigan State University. What is the most important thing you've learned so far?
The most important thing I’ve learned during my first year at MSU is the art of persuasion. It’s important to be able to appeal to the average person in a way that can positively influence their behavior.
What is your spirit animal?
I believe my spirit animal would be a wolf. Wolves lead from behind, putting others’ needs before their own, and are kind-hearted yet strong.
