What is your pre-MBA experience? I worked for 3 years as a PM at a fast-growing tech startup in NYC
Why did you choose to come to Johnson? The Recruiting and Events Coordinator at Johnson welcomed me with a hug when I visited the school and I LIVE for hugs. Corny but true - I was immediately sold. The incredibly warm and welcoming community, tech-focused immersion, NYC tech campus, and flexibility to take classes outside of the business school were other important factors that played a role.
What are you most excited about this summer? Being vaccinated and traveling with friends before starting my full-time role at Microsoft. I'm also looking forward to doing some camping trips - I only 'discovered' camping this past year and now really love it!
What is your hidden talent: Played tennis since age 6 and was travelling to national tournaments since I was 9 years old. I continued to play competitively until I was 16 and participated in over 20 international tournaments!
