Mr. Well-Traveled Nonprofit Star

About Me:

Graduated from a top liberal arts school having coasted through with a 3.0 GPA. Spent a year living abroad teaching English in Spain, and then 2.5 more years traveling around the world through Asia and Latin America before returning to the U.S. and becoming the Executive Director of a small nonprofit. Speak 4-5 languages to varying degrees of fluency.


Undergrad School: Pomona College

Undergrad Major: Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE)

GPA: 3.0

GRE: 322

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: TRAVELING: I spent 3 years post-college traveling the world (with intermittent stints of seasonal jobs to pay for it), teaching English in Spain and hitchhiking all over Europe, exploring Asia, and hiking all throughout Patagonia and the Andes of South America, MUSIC: I was an award-winning musician in high school, and continue to produce and publish music, nowadays in the form of witty and humorous hip hop about a variety of social issues, OUTDOORS: I'm an avid outdoors fanatic, and frequently hike, run, and backpack in the wilderness.

Work History:

Title: Executive Director

Industry: Nonprofit / B-Corp

Company: Immigrant Services

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 1 mos

Big Life Wins:

The small social justice nonprofit organization I assumed leadership of was severely flagging and on the brink of collapse. Through two years of hard work, I’ve rebuilt it from the ground up, quadrupled its budget, tripled its staff size, and renovated it into something much more impactful and sustainable.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to fortify the learned business and organizational leadership skills I’ve developed through my trial-by-fire experience into a solid understanding of business administration, and take this expertise forward to lead/improve other businesses or explore entrepreneurship.


Target School: Berkeley Haas

Status: Open

Considering: Stanford GSB, IESE, USC Marshall
