Kelly Membreno BerriosWELCOME TO GEORGETOWN!

Hi! My name is Kelly Membreno Berrios and I am a McDonough peer ambassador.

Hometown: Woodbridge, VA

Class: 2020

Major: International Political Economy and Business, & Finance

Extracurricular Activities: Peer Ambassador and Leadership Program and C.A.M.P.

Interesting Fact About Me: I was born in Managua, Nicaragua, and moved to the U.S. in 2006.

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I was attracted by the incredible opportunities to study abroad. Georgetown is also in the same city as the World Bank where I hope to intern at in the future. Plus, Georgetown is close to home and the campus is beautiful!

What are the best things about being a Hoya? The best part about being a Hoya is being part of a supportive and motivational community made up of Hoyas with different interests and backgrounds.

Why do you love D.C.? I love D.C. because it is such a diverse city with restaurants, shops, museums, etc., that cater to everyone’s tastes.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? I took Intro to Gender and Women’s studies my first semester of my first year and although the class was my most difficult class of the semester, it opened my eyes about how gender truly operates in our society. From taking this course, I learned that the difficulty level of a course should not be more important than the value of it when deciding which classes to sign up for.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? Enjoy your time at Georgetown from day one because time flies!
