Ms. Future CMO
I had a late start to realizing my potential. Parents are part of a minority group/immigrants, they couldn’t guide me since they never finished school. Luckily, I crossed paths with mentors who inspired me to be more. Solo-traveling changed my mindset to be curious and self-aware, challenge my potential. I want to make an impact and pay it forward. **Additional Commentary: I understand my GPA is low. What test scores I need in order to be accepted into these programs? I am aiming for hybrid/part-time programs as I’d like to stay in NYC.
