Colombian American rising junior pursuing a double in Finance and Advanced Economic Analysis.

Big Life Wins:

At my undergrad, I realized that although we had such a diverse population, we were lacking established diversity efforts. I founded a diversity-focused institution with 4 verticals within it, the first being a finance fellowship that serves URM’s pursuing careers in high finance, the second being a speaker series that brings professionals to speak on their experiences with diversity in their life and career, and disseminate guidance to prospective students. The third vertical is to empower female and minority entrepreneurs to grow their businesses through research, education, and national ecosystem development. The fourth is a 100% minority-owned and run with a majority allocation in minority and female-owned businesses and ESG investments. I also lead a volunteer project to rebuild the home of an impoverished family in Colombia during my freshman year.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to continue to scale my diversity efforts on a global scale and use what I have developed in my undergrad as a foundation. Furthermore, I want to be able to use my passion for finance to drive positive impacts in emerging countries, especially Colombia, and reinvigorate infrastructure projects through project finance.

    2+2 at Harvard is hard and the fact that you are getting your degree at Florida State doesn’t help you. That’s because MBA admissions policies at the very best schools are pretty elitist. If I asked you to tell me how many Florida State undergrads were in Harvard Business School’s Class of 2020, what do you think the answer might be? Let me tell you. It was one out of roughly 940 people. That’s better than none but it is nowhere near the 46 from Harvard, 39 from Penn, 35 from Stanford, 31 from Yale, 24 from Princeton, 23 from Duke, 20 from Dartmouth, 18 from Cornell and Notre Dame. In other words, Almost 1 in 5 HBS admits did their undergraduate at five schools: …
