Describe your potential job duties
At Deloitte, I will oversee the account open for Google, finding ways to mitigate risks and audit compliance issues. I will be involved in helping our clients identify and understand technology risk as their businesses change, while analyzing and improving the effectiveness of governance and financial operation processes, and offering recommendations to assist clients with enterprise and compliance activities. I will be on the forefront of program transformation, strengthening overall risk management and implementation of technology to support such risk programs.
Who would you like to thank as you finish your time at Purdue and start your career?
I would like to thank God and my family first and foremost for giving me the opportunity and the zeal to pursue my dreams. It is so common as a minority to feel as though the world is depending on you to succeed for your family. While that can be the biggest motivation, it can also deter you from your passion. My family and my relationship with God have always pushed me toward following what makes my heart glow, and I know the next place that I go I will be able to repay them for all the beautiful ways they have shown up for me.
I would also like to thank Dr. Levon Ester, Cathy Pullings, Antonia Munguia and Benito Martinez. Purdue Polytechnic has made a promise to help students in any way they can. These people are just a few at the forefront of helping students find their success story, encouraging leadership, and awarding courage.
Lastly, when I met both Presidents of Purdue, President Mitch Daniels and President Mung Chiang, I found that they gave similar advice when it came to my future.
If you had a favorite class, project, experience, or professor, what/who was it, and why?
My favorite project to date was orchestrating a Purdue-funded summit, called A Climb to Success, as President of Purdue’s Global Technology, Supply Chain and Leadership Association (GT-SCALA). At the summit, students chose to participate in either two breakout sessions or the selling case competition. After each workshop, students received a signed certificate and a voucher for restaurants in the basement of the Union. The day also included a fireside chat with startup founder and alumnus Isaiah Baptiste, a career fair with companies like Rolls Royce, and a keynote speech from Bill Good, VP of Supply Chain with GE Appliances. Students in all fields interested in entrepreneurship found toolkits and pillars to success at the summit.
