Interesting Fact About Me: My oldest brother was a Navy Seal.

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose Georgetown’s business school due to its amazing location in the nation’s capital and its connections with businesses throughout the country.

What are the best things about being a Hoya? Despite being a prestigious and competitive business school, everyone is open and supportive. I have found everyone is willing to help out each other, as we are truly a family here at Georgetown.

Why do you love D.C.? DC’s easy accessibility provides the chance to walk to the monuments, hang out at the National Mall, eat at an endless variety of restaurants, and attend professional sports games. No matter the season, there is always something exciting to do in the city!

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? Georgetown’s diversity creates a classroom setting that serves as a place to learn and grow not just academically, but socially.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? Come into your first year open to try new things outside of your comfort zone. This will allow you to meet a diverse group of people, learn new things, and grow as a person.
