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

The most appealing part about the Program was that I’m able to gain so much in just 10 months and build upon the skill sets I gained during my time as an undergrad and working for a year after graduation.

What are you looking forward to most in the Program?

I’m definitely looking forward to the Global Immersion Experience. I studied abroad in Valencia during undergrad, and it was absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to explore even more of the world!

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

Tri Sigma and Madison House (tutoring and help line)

If you could go on a cross-country road trip with a famous person, living or dead, who would it be?

Taylor Swift, because she’d be a great carpool-karaoke partner! Plus, I feel like she’d know all of the cool places to go.

Name three places on your bucket list to travel to.

1. Australia: I LOVE kangaroos, and (obviously) this would be the place to go to get up close and personal. Plus, snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef is on my bucket list, too!

2. Colombia: I wrote my undergrad thesis about Colombia, so it would be super cool to actually go and experience firsthand the culture!

3. Italy: Despite studying abroad in Europe, I never made it to Italy. I would love to try (and potentially learn to make) true Italian pizza and pasta in the next few years.
