Taghi Amundson is a Sales Intern at KW Commercial 889-9898 with Russell Bernstein, CBI. He is a rising Junior at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. There, he is a Finance and Spanish for Business double major and is expected to graduate in May 2022.
Taghi is from San Francisco, California, where he became interested in Financial Analysis and Real Estate. Last summer, Taghi worked at Horizons at SFFS, a nonprofit summer program for kids aged 6-10 who are falling behind academically and do not have the resources to retain their skills over the summer. As a program assistant, he managed the food program, which provided meals to over 60 students, as well as various other projects related to the program.
Throughout high school, Taghi volunteered at Horizons. His volunteer work eventually led him to his position as Program Assistant. In addition, he has volunteered as a classroom assistant at New Traditions Elementary. Taghi is also closely involved with his fraternity, Sigma Pi, where he serves on the Philanthropy Committee. His work on the committee includes helping at a local elementary school on a weekly basis, habitat builds, and assisting with campus gardening.
Outside of the classroom, Taghi played four years of Varsity Baseball in high school, including one year as captain, and three years of basketball. At Wake Forest, he played for the Club Baseball team. He is also a member of the Sports Business Association and Sports Analytics Club, as he seeks to sharpen his analytical skills while also exploring his passion for sports.
In addition to sports, Taghi is also passionate about studying music history, playing guitar, investment research, sustainability, and spending time outdoors. He hopes to contribute as much as possible to the Sales Team and apply everything that he learns under Russell Bernstein as he continues to pursue his passion for finance.
