Sheils on Stanford
"Stanford has been a place where I can pursue so many awesome opportunities. I have been able to travel with our amazing team, but I also have a job where I can bring in ambassadors and speakers to our dorm. I can have one-on-one conversations with world-renowned economists. I feel like I am supported in anything and can reach high levels in so many different areas."
