Interesting Fact About Me: I went volcano boarding in Nicaragua!

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business?  I choose the McDonough School of Business because of the global opportunities available, Jesuit values of men and women for others, and its location in D.C.

What are the best things about being a Hoya?  My favorite thing about being a Hoya is the endless opportunities right at your fingertips. No matter where your interests lead you, there will be someone you can learn from.

Why do you love D.C.?  There’s so much going on you’ll never run out of things to do. There will always be a cultural event, new restaurant, or museum to check out.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?  I went on an Alternative Break Program (ABP) trip to Nogales, Arizona/Mexico to learn about the issue of immigration from individuals seeking asylum, lawyers, and social justice advocates that opened my eyes to better understanding a prevalent problem.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?  I would advise new Hoyas to find their own definition of success, do things they are passionate about, and learn to be comfortable with going beyond their comfort zones
