What inspired you to pursue PPRS?
There are two reasons why I pursued PPRS: personal interest and societal impact. I first became interested in public policy as a delegate to the Missouri Youth in Government Conference for five years and the Conference on National Affairs for three years. At these conferences, I enjoyed writing and debating public policy proposals with 600 delegates of varying political ideologies. I was eager to work with my peers to find creative solutions to the varying problems facing our society. Beyond pure interest, I believe it is important to have a firm understanding of public policy due to its large societal impact. Every policy enacted by our government affects both individuals and corporations. I hope to utilize my Wharton education and my knowledge of public policy to make and advocate for policy decisions that provide the highest utility to all societal actors.
What do you want to do in the future?
I am currently pursuing a career in consulting or business strategy. I hope to utilize my strong knowledge of technology policy provided through PPRS to provide strategic and innovative insight to technology and telecommunications companies. Eventually, I would like to get a PhD in Economics and work for the government in an advisory role for technology or economic policy.
