I plan on majoring in economics and hope to obtain a Ph.D. in the field one day. I also am considering minoring in Computer Science or Environmental Science, but both these plans may change after I start college. Beyond academics, I hope to explore different clubs and organizations around campus and continue swimming as a club sport.
