Best IU experience so far: Itís so hard to choose, but Little 5 always comes to mind!

My greatest role model and why: Arianna Huffington Ė I respect her opinions for their thoughtfulness and boldness, and admire her path to success.

Favorite class at IU and why: I loved the BEPP class G345 Ė Money, Banking, & Capital Markets. It was my first academic exposure to the financial markets and the macroeconomy, and I pretty much fell in love.

Something Iím really passionate about: Politics, economics, and playing golf! I also love going to concerts with friends.

Something that would surprise people about me: Iím half Icelandic - my momís side of the family is from Iceland, a country of only 300,000 people.
