“I never would have imagined that I would have the opportunity to make a presentation in front of partners from Deloitte who flew from New York to Durham just for the day to participate in a strategy class. It was an amazing experience!”

Why I Chose Fuqua

I was attracted to the program because I liked that I would be able to study at two world-class universities and be exposed to today’s most important economies. It seemed like a challenge that I wanted to take on! I also really liked the supportive aspect of Fuqua and its reputation as one of the top business schools in the U.S.

Before Fuqua

I was an assistant brand manager for a luxury hat brand and also worked in sales and international trade-marketing for a French perfume brand belonging to a Korean cosmetics giant.

After Fuqua

I would like to start a career within a distribution agency importing luxury French goods by small brands to China and its neighboring countries.

5 Things To Do Before Leaving for Kunshan

  1. Go to a Duke basketball game
  2. Climb to the top of Duke Chapel
  3. Spend a day in Raleigh
  4. Ride the bull at Shooters
  5. Buy a “Duke Dad” or “Duke Mom” item for your parents

What I Love About Durham

Durham is full of cool hidden gems. There are a lot of unexpected hipster bars and restaurants for millennials that also manage to keep a southern vibe. Some of my favorites are Mad Hatter’s Café & Bakeshop, The Parlour, and Dashi.
