  • I model after school some days during the week and often in the summer months.

  • I have been an equestrian for about 10 years starting since I was about 7 or 8 years old.

  • I was an intern at Vogue in my freshman and sophomore years and then once more in my senior year with a stint at Victoria's secret in between.

Personal Story

"The story was actually pretty funny when it surfaced because no one believed it. For the longest time most of the people in my class thought that I was just an airhead who used only her looks to do anything so seeing their jaws drop when the school editor did a piece about Ivy League bound students it was lots of fun.

Other than that, Columbia is a cool campus and when I visited with my mom last year I could really see myself going here one day so it was pretty exciting when I got in."

Useful Advice

"I had a bunch of tutoring growing up in pretty much everything because I was a pretty dumb kid when I was little, but my tutors saved my butt and taught me everything.. I wouldn't be here if I weren't for them.

I would recommend tutors because they do wonders in helping break down a concept and really explaining it well. If possible, I'd hire tutors from the Ivy League because they've actually had first hand experience at the school although they are usually a little bit pricier at $300 - $400 / hr.

But, if they can, tutors are definitely a plus and I would highly recommend going down that route."
