BS (‘17)
Entrepreneur, Retail & Real Estate

What is the most challenging part of your job?
I think being an entrepreneur gives you challenges on the daily. Oftentimes there’s no one holding your hand or giving you constant guidance which can be tough coming from school or a traditional company where you always had a professor or boss as someone you can turn to in times of trouble or uncertainty. As an entrepreneur you need to overcome the fear of the unknown and continue pushing forward especially when thinking of giving up.

What was the most important thing you learned while studying at Cal?
Cal really gave me another perspective on what hard work meant. It takes it to a different level that makes everything else afterwards seem easier and/or gives you the confidence to tackle on even more challenging tasks.

Do you have any advice for current IEOR students?
Definitely utilize all of the resources on campus. Explore around and you can find a lot more opportunities right around the corner. Cherish the moments you spending
learning and thriving with your fellow students, faculty and staff.

What do you miss most about being a student at Cal?
I miss being in an environment where everyone is so focused on a particular subject/major where learning and exploring is the main goal.
