What are you most looking forward to this year in the Shoemaker Scholars? 
I want to see a more connected community by making it more welcome to newcomers. I say this because I sense that the relationships are often fragmented; I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, but too much of it can be so.

What innovative or entrepreneurial projects are you working on this year?
I am working on some projects to change the financial structures around campus so that students get more out of their money.

What’s one piece of advice you have for IU students with regard to innovation and entrepreneurship?
Visit the Shoebox and meet some people.
