Interesting Fact About Me: I am a spring 2017 transfer student!

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose the McDonough School of Business because of its prestigious reputation, involved faculty, opportunistic location in DC, and strong business network.

What are the best things about being a Hoya? I enjoy being able to explore DC both personally and professionally, especially with other Hoyas. My peers and I always enjoy adventuring in such a great city.

Why do you love D.C.? I love D.C. because of the variety of experiences it has to offer. D.C. offers rich history that can be experienced through museums and monuments. D.C. also provides a wealth of current opportunities in both political and social settings.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? When I took a class called Holocaust and Gender, I had my eyes opened to so much about the Holocaust that I had never considered. I am grateful to the liberal arts core for introducing me to a new area of study and to new people with interesting backgrounds.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? I would advise new Hoyas to take advantage of all of the opportunities that Georgetown and DC have to offer.
