I graduated from Los Altos High School in 2007, and was a part of the Stanford Club all throughout high school( I played both in summer and winter.)
After high school and club polo, I was invited to to attend Indiana University on a scholarship to play the amazing sport of water polo:). I had the BEST time ever being a college athlete. It’s like you’re a part of your own sorority or fraternity, not only within your team, but with all of the other athletes at school. We all understood our rigorous schedules, so we were always hanging out on campus, during lunch or dinner, and while out on weekends at house parties or bars(after we were 21 of course:)) Ahh, college was so FUN! I graduated in the class of 2011 with some of the most amazing memories of my life, a handful of best friends, and a BA in Sports Communications.
Today I am traveling the world and continuing to pursue what I am passionate about, food:). After college, I went on to work in many different industries to find out what it was I really wanted to do! I worked in a high end hotel, I worked for the NBA (hence my degree in sports communications), I worked for a chocolate company, and I worked in restaurants. After trying out all of these different jobs, I realized that FOOD was my passion. I recently just came back from living overseas in Paris, France for a year while attending culinary school! What a blast! Right now I am living in Boston for the Summer with my boyfriend who is attending Harvard, while I’m working on starting my own businesses online, as well as looking at the NY area for food styling work. A little off my original degree, yes? 🙂
1. Relax, stress gets you nowhere. Is it life threatening? If not, then what is to worry about?! Stay positive and it will always work out in your favor.
2. In failure, seek opportunity. If something doesn’t go as planned, keep positive and look for the hidden opportunity it can bring you
3. ASK, today the world revolves around who you know, so get to know as many people as you can and ASK for help as much as you can. It’s crazy to think about how many experiences and opportunities I have been given, simply because I asked.
4. Believe, believe in yourself! This is what gets you to accomplish all of your goals and aspirations. Believe in all of the great talents and skills you have been given and NEVER let others determine your value.
