If I wasn't an Academic Advisor I would have been an academic researcher and data scientist.

My major in college was International Relations and I chose it because I wanted to work for international non-profit organizations focused on youth employment and education in developing countries.

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) patience
2) planning, organizing, and expressing ideas clearly
3) respecting deadlines set by others

My favorite quote is:
Optimism is to see opportunities in your difficulties.  Pessimism is to see difficulties in your opportunities. (Sufi theology)
