What are you most looking forward to this year in the Shoemaker Scholars? I’m looking forward to helping plan events. In the process of doing so, I will learn more about all of the entrepreneurship resources on campus.


What innovative or entrepreneurial projects are you working on this year?

I am working to develop a medical device that will prevent future overdoses due to the misuse and abuse of prescription medication.


What’s one piece of advice you have for IU students with regard to innovation and entrepreneurship?

College is the best time to try to create a startup; there are plenty of resources. If it doesn’t work out, you will have learned valuable lessons and have gained great experience. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from trying.
