I am a junior at Lehigh University pursuing degrees in finance and computer engineering as part of the university's Integrated Business and Engineering (IBE) Honors Program. Based in Bethlehem, PA, I am a leader and active member in many campus clubs and organizations. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, drums, and guitar.
Lehigh's Integrated Business and Engineering Honors Program (IBE) focuses on product development and entrepreneurship through a unique curriculum including simulations, specialized lectures, and case study projects as well as traditional business, engineering, physics, mathematics, and humanities coursework. The fifty students per year who complete the rigorous 137-credit curriculum receive an AACSB-accredited business degree in the form of a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Business and Engineering with a major in their desired discipline.
Here are some of my leadership roles at Lehigh.
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the honor society of IEEE. At Lehigh, the chapter is dedicated to maintaining a level of academic excellence throughout the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. As treasurer, my responsibilities include managing the organization's budget, collecting dues, and helping to organize various academic programs, community events, and professional workshops.
The IEEE student branch at Lehigh is committed to the students of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. As Vice President, I work to build interest in the department, offer academic and tutoring services, cultivate a network of student peers, and give our members quality resources to develop themselves professionally.
The Lehigh Tea Club was founded in the Spring of 2020 with the goal of bringing students together through a mutual enjoyment of tea. As treasurer, I manage the club budget and work with the other board members to host fun community-building events. Despite its non-academic nature, co-founding this club has been an insightful experience.
During my time as the Vice President of my residence hall, I was responsible for organizing fun events to bring our residence hall community closer. The position allowed me to experience event planning, marketing, and hosting and get a better sense of the logistics that are involved with such events.
In my time away from leadership roles, I take part in Lehigh's Investment Management Group, which collectively manages a portfolio of over $100,000. I am also the drummer for a Lehigh jazz combo which rehearses weekly and performs in concert twice every semester.
These are some of the applications and programming languages with which I have prior experience.
The Six Sigma program teaches the value and skills of using statistical analysis to maximize effectiveness of various business processes. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt earned through the IBE program ensures a foundational understanding of applying these optimization methods through hands-on exercises and a final project involving measuring a process on Lehigh's campus and performing the appropriate statistical analysis to observe trends within.
