I'm a freshman at Harvard, where I am planning to study economics and neurobiology.
I hope to drive the relationship between the private and public sector to maximize the economic opportunities of everyday Americans. Entrepreneurship and legislative policy guide my work of making social mobility a stronger, more possible reality.
As the son of a war refugee and first-generation immigrants, this mission is a reflection of my own story.
I am indebted to all those who have supported me.
