When Sara Nelson first arrived at Cornell, her major was undeclared, and she wasn’t even sure if she was going to drop Gen Chem or stick with it. Well just look at her now, one week later. This inspiring freshman already knows exactly what she’s going to do with her life, starting with officially declaring both Psychology and Economics majors and a minor in Spanish, before she’s even had her first Cornell prelim. Talk about ambitious plans!
“Having an 8:40AM every Monday–Thursday will really help me get my day started on the right track,” said Nelson, still unsure of her section leader’s name. “And my break from 10:10–11AM every MWF will be perfect for completing at least two homework assignments.”
The tireless scholar continued to talk about how she intends on hitting the treadmills at Helen Newman after her classes end at 3:20PM every weekday. Her free time on weekends will be spent preparing her Student Assembly campaign. What a champ!
Not only does Nelson have her academic career set in stone, but also her life after graduating magna cum laude! This determined freshmen plans on going straight into the wild world of finance and expects to become a senior data analyst at Goldman Sachs after two successful years at the company.
It’s so motivating to see such a young Cornellian figure out her definitive life plans that are entirely set in stone. Keep up the great work Sara!
