Interesting Fact About Me:

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business?
I was attracted to the “large core” that provides exposure to all the majors, the small class sizes and the engaging and caring professors.
What are the best things about being a Hoya?
When you become a Hoya, you join the amazingly supportive Hoya community. Fellow Hoyas, past and present, are always there to help you.
Why do you love D.C.?
DC provides so many opportunities both for pleasure and academic enrichment. This past year, I was able to see the Pope address a Joint Session of Congress and honor Justice Scalia. I also was a part-time Congressional intern, which was an extremely rewarding experience!
Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?
This past semester, I learned about a court case in my Business Law class then had the opportunity to go down the street to the Supreme Court to hear the oral argument for it. This is just one example of how going to college in DC can enrich your academic experience!
What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?
Approach all situations with an open mind – Take a class in an area you weren’t exposed to in high school, take advantage of the opportunities Georgetown and DC provide and befriend other amazing Hoyas.
