Ever since being involved with my high school’s special education program, I have had a desire to help individuals with disabilities to live more independently. I am planning to use my Georgia Tech education to help engage more businesses in creating accessible work environments and products. I believe that when everyone is given an equal opportunity,  the results are endless!

I learned about AxisAbility through the Excel program, which is one of my biggest passions and use of time at Georgia Tech. Microsoft places a heavy emphasis on designing for accessibility, so I'd love to continue that this summer.
