Big Life Wins:
Helped win a multi-million dollar bid as the only junior member of the team (otherwise a group of Senior Managers & Partners). I was invited to join in on the pitch to the client in their boardroom, which is a highly uncommon opportunity for junior staff members at my firm. I then helped launch the project & take it live over 1.5 years.
Post MBA Goal:
I wish to transition into TMT Investment Banking at a bulge bracket firm. Technology consulting has taught me a lot about the differences between good ideas and actionable ideas and how to spot them, which I think will be invaluable in IB. As I advance in my career, I also hope to help create space for Women of Colour in Finance & Tech.
