Extracurricular Activities: I’m a student-athlete, I write for the Brown Political Review, I’m part of the Brown Entrepreneurship Program, and am involved with the National Center for Entrepreneurship on campus.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact?
I would say my team and the Brown Entrepreneurship Program. The sports team was first and foremost a defining characteristic of my time at Brown because of the community I made there and the time I spent with those people practicing and traveling. The Brown Entrepreneurship Program provided me the space to develop myself as a leader and a collaborator and in a subject I’m passionate about and interested in.
What is the Brown Entrepreneurship Program?
It’s a student organization that provides students on College Hill with the resources to learn more about entrepreneurship and starting their own business. We’re just learning from others who have started their businesses and ventures whether it’s through grants or summer opportunities or through student-run conferences where we invite different speakers to come and lead workshops related to entrepreneurship and starting your own company. Throughout the year, we also have numerous speakers that come on more on a week to week basis. It’s more to foster an innovative spirit on campus and to help those interested in learning about entrepreneurship.
