What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business?  I chose the McDonough School of Business because it is a highly ranked business school in a global city that offers great internships and other opportunities.

What are the best things about being a Hoya?  I love the atmosphere on campus and the great opportunities available through clubs and other organizations as well as lots of interesting and friendly people.

Why do you love D.C.?  I love to run the monuments and take in the scenery of D.C. on a regular basis. I also love that Georgetown is right on the Waterfront, which is a great place to read and relax.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?  My favorite class at Georgetown so far has been Competing in a Flat World. This first year seminar eased the transition to college and helped prepare me for the academic challenges of life at Georgetown.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?  Join all the clubs that interest you and don’t be afraid to get involved.
