Someone who inspires you and knowledge they have imparted:
Wendy Wen, the founder of the handbag company I work for is a huge inspiration. She is an MIT alumni, who eventually started her own company. She is great because she gives me the courage to venture out and figure out what I want to do. I know I want to eventually start a company, but the path to get there is still very uncertain. The greatest thing she has ever told me was, “If you want to start a company, just do it.”

Song that makes you want to dance:
”Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield inspires me and also takes me back to my childhood.


Challenge you’ve faced and how you overcame it:
I think the biggest decision I had to make was what college to go to. I wasn’t entirely sure about engineering, but choosing MIT was a bit more of a commitment to that. It was the best decision I have made and I am glad to have made both the professional and personal decision to go.

Ideal Job:

What knowledge would you impart to women in order for them to REIGN their lives?
Don’t be afraid to try new things and reach out to people! I think the best things that have happened to me have been a product of me just putting myself out there.
