Big Life Wins:
1) Responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment and contributing to the planning of strategic military operations for 300+ people. 2) Former 4-year division 1 student-athlete I believe there is no more rewarding and unique experience like it. Being responsible for the lives and welfare of 20+ Soldiers at such a young age allowed me to hone in on my leadership and serve as a representative for such a group of men through the world of sports. That experience was able to provide me with the daily opportunity to interact with people from all different backgrounds and diversify my understandings of people. These are transferable skills that I would be able to apply toward my business school experience when collaborating with classmates or fellow employers.
Post MBA Goal:
My post-MBA goal is to pivot into either the tech or marketing industry. Acquiring an MBA will teach me how to network effectively, grant me the ability to solve complex problems, and enhance my leadership capabilities. These qualities are just a few of many that I intend to take away and will assist me in accomplishing my long term goals, improve my managerial skills, and help me become more competent in understanding the world of business.
