What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose the McDonough School of Business for the vast network of opportunity and experience.
What are the best things about being a Hoya? The best things about being a Hoya are the basketball team, the other Hoyas, the red brick, and all the different things to do on campus.
Why do you love D.C.? I love DC because of the feel of the city. You’ve got the busy city life, and right there there’s the parks and national mall. Also, the rich political and artistic history is so incredible if you take the time to seek it.
Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? My final Problem of God project, in which I analyzed Rap and Hip-Hop lyrics about God and struggle over the past few decades. It was then that I realized I could really branch out and find unique ways to relate my personal interests to my classes.
What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? My main piece of advice would just be to not feel tied down here. Feel free to explore and get out of your comfort zone once you get to campus, I assure you’ll find something new that you’ll love!
