Mr. Gay Social Scientist

About Me:

I recently finished grad school. I did poorly in college due to illness (which has since been treated), but did fairly well in my MS. I really enjoyed the statistical training of it and am considering an MBA. Before grad school, I worked as an analyst for a small fin-tech firm, but I’ve also worked in restaurants, dorms, and led research.

Extracurriculars: In college, I was a resident assistant for two years and led a team of peer counselors on a suicide prevention team for a year and a half. I also held a research role with an urban policy and economics center for three semesters. I also attended protests for gay pride groups freshman year.

Big Life Wins:

I enjoy hiking, and hiked from the top of NC to the southern border in four days when I was 17. Despite my mediocre grades, I finished college in three years.

I’d like to become a consultant, preferably at a large firm. I’d like to be able to use my background in research and knowledge of social psychology.

    Do you hold a tribal ID card? If not my odds go down to 10%. Native Americans are the single most underrepresented group by an enormous margin.
