Why are you a CIT Student Council Member? 

I decided to run for CIT Student Council because I wanted to be more involved in the CIT department and get to meet more of my peers. After speaking with past officers, I realized that the CIT Student Council is a great resource for our student body, and we really have the freedom to do what we want as a student body. Please reach out if there are any events you want to see in CIT!

What other activities are you involved in on or off campus? 

I am involved with other CIT-related extracurriculars such as Cyberforensics Club. In my free time, I am also a member of the R6 @ Purdue main roster, for which I also analyze statistics.

Where do you want to be/ what do you want to be doing in 10 years?

10 years ago, I had no idea I would be where I am today. That being said, I know I want to work on the blue team side of cybersecurity, but only the future knows who I will work for, whether it be the government or as a consultant. Who knows if I end up a lawyer some day.

Why did you choose the Polytechnic Institute?

I decided to apply for CIT, and thus the Polytechnic Institute, because it is a very unique program that not many schools currently have. I am so grateful for that decision, as it has been the perfect experience for me thus far.
