Why I gave

Some of my most magical memories are from Stanford. I met some of the best and brightest minds, and the kaleidoscope of diversity was unparalleled. Stanford offers a warm and welcoming environment for interdisciplinary learning that can unlock many life changing opportunities.

The friendships and network that I established at Stanford have significantly enhanced my life. As the top academic and athletic intuition, it’s important to provide others with the same opportunity that I was given.
