Joined CIMBA in 2018

One of my favorite travel memories: Spending time with friends exploring the islands off the coast of South Korea.

The best food I’ve ever eaten while travelling: A traditional “Ulster Fry” cooked by my friend’s mom in Northern Ireland. Even the black pudding!

The most amazing place I have travelled to: The Taj Mahal at dawn.

I was drawn to CIMBA because of: The personal approach to student relationships, rigorous academics, and commitment to leadership development, all in a beautiful location.
