Fun Fact

I brew my own IPA, Kölsch, and amber lager style beers at home.

Why did you choose UGA?

Nine years ago, when I came to this country, it was my stepdad's dream for me to go to UGA but later on it became my aspiration to come to UGA. Without realizing it, everything I dream of I found here: the most amazing people, limitless opportunities, and personal growth.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

Having the chance to meet some of the most incredible people, some which we had gone to a concert in Atlanta, come back to Athens at 4am, and wake up at 6am for Dr. Thompson's class.
