Graduation: May 2022
Congratulations to ICT Scholarship Recipient, Elli Tai. Elli is a student at University of Texas-Dallas majoring in Actuarial Science. With a 4.0 GPA in her major, Elli is a National Merit Scholar has already passed several professional exams toward her mathematic and insurance designations. She is currently an intern conducting project-based work at Verisk.
Asked about her interest in insurance, Elli says, “ It’s been eye opening to learn how interesting risk management is. When I was first introduced to it, I was under the impression that a career in insurance meant having a tedious desk job. However, over the past few years, I’ve discovered that insurance is a dynamic industry with no shortage of opportunities to grow. Through being an officer for GIS and attending events and conferences, I’ve had the opportunity to develop my leadership skills, practice creative problem solving, and make valuable connections with wonderful people.”
