What stood out to you in selecting to attend the M.S. in Commerce Program?

Career development is my primary concern. A student ambassador from last year talked a lot about the Commerce Career Services here. CCS helps students to figure out what their real interests are and in what fields they want to work in the future. With the tremendous resources CCS provides, such as the resume review, mock interviews, and connecting students with alumni, I knew this program would be the right fit for me.

What are you looking forward to most in the Program?

The Global Immersion Experience. I will be talking to executives to discover how they navigate the challenges that come with their markets. It gives me the chance to understand the way that companies function on a global scale.

What clubs and organizations were you involved with during your time in undergrad?

Weiwu Dancing Association

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you bring?

Iron Man. Then I wouldn’t need anything else because I would no longer be stranded.

What are your hobbies?

Traveling, photography
