Post MSTP Training dream job

Fun Facts

What you enjoy outside of school

Sports, both playing and watching. Pretty much anything outdoors or active, though going to the beach is definitely #1.

A talent you have always wanted

I’d love to be a polyglot. Language is the key to understanding a different culture, and the more languages you speak, the better you can relate to different customs and cultures.

Favorite book

Travels by Michael Crichton

Favorite quote

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice a gift.

Can’t live without

Coffee. Morning coffee, mid-morning coffee, post-lunch coffee. (Higher coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of death, PMID: 28693036)

If you weren’t in MSTP, what would you be doing now?

Probably be working in industry as an engineer.
