Favorite Quote: “Being a good person is a choice. Don’t let people fool you into believing that truly good people never have bad thoughts, are never tempted by the easier path, by the low road, never mess up or act out selfishly. Never believe a person can be good without making a conscious effort. Every single time you do something good, you’ve made a decision to make the world a little brighter.”

Why did you join EWB?

Joining EWB was serendipity. I was passing by the International lounge where a GIM was being hosted and I ran into my friend (who is the current Director of Marketing and Social Relations) who asked me to keep her company.

Why did you stay?

I stayed in EWB because of the people I met. They all had great minds, intentions, and overall are amazing people. The fact that I get to do volunteer work was also a plus as volunteering was a significant part of my high school career and I am more than happy to contribute to projects that incorporate my education with something I enjoy doing.

How has EWB helped you?

EWB has helped me become more hardworking, and it has given me a cause I can work towards to feel like I’m spending my time in a worthwhile way.
