How I’m Involved

I am involved in tennis, Leadership Academy, Women in Aviation, Vaughn Air Traffic Control Organization, and American Association of Airport Executives.

What I Want High School Students to Know

I wish I knew the amount of scholarships that were out there beck when I was in high school. I would encourage high schoolers to apply to as many scholarships as they can because it is a great way to finance your college education. Your Money Mentor can help you find a ton of scholarships for you! Sign up here http://ngv.io/match.

The Best Class I’ve Taken So Far

My Air Traffic Control class is the best class I have taken so far and Vaughn is also the only place that offers it in New York City.

My Plans for After I Graduate

I hope to become a pilot or work in Air Traffic Control after I graduate.

Working at NextGenVest

It has been an amazing experience working at NextGenVest and helping other students with the same things that I had issues with in the past. It's a really good feeling to know that these students will know what I didn't know throughout the entire college process.
