What sparked your interest in entrepreneurship?

I grew up in an entrepreneurial family. From a young age I was able to sit in on business calls and watch my parents start a few companies. Once I came to NU, I fell into some entrepreneurship courses, and realized my passion for entrepreneurship.

What was your favorite entrepreneurship course?

My favorite course was definitely NUvention. I took the energy track my junior year, from which my team and I started a company, MeterGenius. I then had the pleasure of TAing the course my senior year.

What has been your greatest takeaway or lesson-learned from an entrepreneurship course?

My biggest takeaways are to always gather data and feedback from customers, and to fail early and fail often.

What are your next steps after graduation or what are you currently doing now? 

I am currently traveling with my family. After I return home, I will look for a job at a startup and begin working. I'm looking forward to starting the next phase of my life.
