My global mindset and enthusiasm for working with people of all backgrounds was significant when getting my job at Microsoft. While at Elon I studied abroad in China, traveling to Shanghai, Tengchong, Lijiang, Chengdu, Lhasa, Xi’an, and Beijing. This experience led me to do research on encryption and VPN usage.
