Living our values

“Succeeding as one global team” is the value that stands out most for me. Achieving personal success is great but doing so as a team means more. As a member of a college football program, I had the privilege of competing alongside 95 teammates for four years. We put our individual interests aside and worked towards one common goal to win the league championship. That experience has shaped me to be the person I am today and to always put the team first.
