Interesting Fact About Me: I lived in the same house from the day I came home from the hospital as a baby to the day I left for my first year of college!

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I was attracted to the “large core” that provides exposure to all the majors, the small class sizes and the engaging and caring professors.

What are the best things about being a Hoya? When you become a Hoya, you join the incredibly supportive Hoya community. Fellow Hoyas, past and present, are always there to help you.

Why do you love D.C.? DC provides so many opportunities that enhance your social and academic experiences. One of the assignments for my Business Law class was to go hear an oral argument at the Supreme Court – something you can only do in DC. There are so many fun things to do in your free time – one of my personal favorite things to do is explore farmers markets.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? Taking the Global Business Experience class (BADM290) showed me how much of an impact I can have by working with my fellow Hoyas. I worked with four of my peers to create a global expansion plan for a family-run bodega in Mendoza, Argentina, and was able to present our proposal to the owners in person over spring break.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? Approach all situations with an open mind – Take a class in an area you weren’t exposed to in high school, take advantage of the opportunities Georgetown and DC provide and befriend other amazing Hoyas.
