Big Life Wins:
Native English speaker fluent in Spanish, Chinese, and Swahili. I imagined my dream job, and before devoting myself completely to this aspiration, I placed myself in a position that is just the opposite. The goal of volunteering for two years in East Africa is to challenge myself, and question my ambitions to work for the Devil (go the corporate route). In addition to volunteering, I’m working with a team to create a social business to bring formal digital employment opportunities to low-income communities in Tanzania.
Post MBA Goal:
I desire to gain expertise on high impact investing and business management, expand my network, be exposed to ideas of other driven professionals, and gain hard skills and technical expertise.
