Ms. Global Empowerment

About Me:

Hello, I’m currently a Peace Corps volunteer serving in S. America. I’m 1 year into my 2 year contract. I currently teach 150 HS students entrepreneur, business advice two associations (ice cream shop and restaurant), hold a teenage mother’s group, and lead a girls empowerment club. I’m passionate about promoting women in business in developing countries.


Undergrad School: Cal State San Marcos

Undergrad Major: Global Business Management; Minored in (1) Women Studies and (2) Visual Arts

GPA: 3.66

GMAT: 740

Age: 24,  Ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino

Extracurriculars: Lead a Girls Leading our World (GLOW) club, Host outdoor movie nights with my projector for the kids in my rural community, Work on my website/blog

Work History:

Title: Economic Development

Industry: Government

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

•Implemented entrepreneur course into school’s curriculum, taking it from a 7-student club to a required course (150 students). •I’m in the process of starting a grant with my teenage mother’s group that would build a space for women to have free access to computers and Wi-Fi and at night be a daycare for teenage mothers to attend night school.

Post MBA Goal:

My long-term goal is to start my own business and base it in developing countries to provide women with jobs and leadership positions. When women have their own source of income, they’re able to gain their independence. The industry I’d like to enter is primarily marketed towards females and so I’d position my business as a women for women business.

    You are, pretty much, an ideal applicant for Stanford. You have the raw GPA and GMAT numbers as a Hispanic female. You are working for the Peace Corps in South America. You are on the front line of the fight for helping others and impacting the lives of real people. In my mind’s eye I can visualize you setting up a projector for those outdoor movie nights for the kids in your rural community. As you know, Stanford has the lowest acceptance rate of any prestige MBA program in the world: Just under 7%. I am wondering if you are a first generation college grad and that may explain why you did your undergrad degree at a local state school. I would bet that Stanford …

    Hello Ms. Global Empowerment! Krista Nannery here from mbaMission. One of my big regrets in life is not doing the Peace Corps myself so I am slightly envious of your experience. Ah, hindsight.

    Please reach out to The Consortium and take advantage of all the wonderful resources they provide to URMs. They will help simplify the application process for some schools and they also host great events and are just generally really helpful.

    Then, I want you to scour LinkedIn for other Peace Corps MBAs. For the top programs, have they done their MBA immediately after the Peace Corps? Or did they enter the workforce for a short amount of time afterwards? Either way, reach out to these students/alumni and chat with them about their experiences …
