Interesting Fact About Me: Catch me singing at all times of the day.

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose the McDonough School of Business because of its outstanding reputation, and ability to combine the elements of business with the ethics of a Catholic school. I also chose it because of its ability to instill in its students the assets of thinking globally!

What are the best things about being a Hoya? The best things about being a Hoya all culminate in the University’s ability to foster a great sense of community within its great diversity!

Why do you love D.C.? I love DC because of all of the amazing restaurants! There is always something to see and do, and that’s pretty amazing!

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? For me, that would probably be when I decided the majors I wanted to pursue. It was this year, in one of my introductory business classes, that I realized that I had a passion for political economy. The Business School offers a major in just that!

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? My advice to incoming Hoyas would be that it’s ok to not do as well as you did in High School! Georgetown is hard, and it’s ok to struggle at times! We all do.
