ULI’s new online Foundations of Real Estate (FoRE) curriculum is targeted to undergraduate students at liberal arts colleges and universities. FoRE, which debuted at Colgate University during the 2019–2020 academic year, is a key part of the Institute’s efforts to identify, diversify, and broaden the pool of young people interested in a real estate career.

I was given the opportunity this summer to perform research at The Young Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara, a lab focusing on community ecology and conservation biology. I was tasked with leading a new experiment on tick survivorship and how it is influenced by global warming.

This summer I had the privilege of working as a press intern for Senator Charles E. Schumer in Washington, D.C.

This summer I had the opportunity to travel to Benin City, Nigeria to work on my company NaSo. NaSo is a clothing brand that takes elements of West African Culture and American Culture and marries them.
