Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Being able to teach financial education to nearly 500 farmers in the Peruvian Amazon

What quality best describes the MBA classmates you’ve met so far and why? Worldly

Aside from your classmates, what was the key factor that led you to choose this programme for your full-time MBA and why was it so important to you? Two things: RSM values you as a person and they put a lot of emphasis on making the world a better place.

What club or activity are you looking most forward to in business school? I’m looking forward doing a wine tour in France.

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point in your career? My previous job did not really have anywhere for me to move up, but I was ready to advance my career. An MBA seemed like a good way to do that.

How did you decide if an MBA was worth the investment? Money can always be made and I’m confident in my job prospects post-MBA.

What other MBA programmes did you apply to? None. This was my first choice and I was accepted before I had to think about a plan B.

How did you determine your fit at various schools? I looked at the missions of the schools, the course offerings, and locations.

What was your defining moment and how did it shape who you are? Probably it was the first time I traveled abroad at the age of 17. I became addicted to travelling until my late 20s. Traveling really does teach you so much, including to value where you’re from.

What do you plan to do after you graduate? Set some roots down.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Pursuing another Masters degree!
