Why I Chose Fuqua

As a Duke basketball player, I was eligible for a fifth year that I could use to attend graduate school. Coach Mike Krzyzewski recommended Fuqua’s one-year MMS program. I had met several MMS students before and I reached out to them about their experience; all of them loved their time at Fuqua. It became a very easy decision for me because I liked that the program allowed me to explore multiple facets of the business world.

Before Fuqua

Through Duke Basketball, I have been involved with the Emily Krzyzewski Center. I volunteer with basketball camps and encourage campers to excel both on the court and in their studies. Additionally, I have volunteered at Duke Children’s Hospital, visiting patients to uplift them and to get to know them personally.

After Fuqua

I want to pursue a career in either basketball or the music industry. With the communication and leadership skills that I have learned at Fuqua, I feel prepared for whichever career path I choose.

5 Random Things About Me

  1. I play forward for the Duke men’s basketball team. Additionally, my father played for 14 years in the NBA.
  2. In my free time, I play the guitar and ukulele.
  3. My favorite thing to do is to find new music. My Fuqua classmates have introduced me to Spanish, Korean, and Chinese artists.
  4. My favorite place on campus is the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.
  5. My favorite travel destination is Hawaii. Being near the water is very relaxing for me.

What I Love About My Classmates

My classmates come from many different cultures and we willingly learn about each other’s traditions and foods. We like to have fun and enjoy our business school experience. That being said, we are a very driven group. Each of us has goals that we are working hard to achieve. I enjoy supporting my friends and I appreciate the support they give me. I know that we will continue to support each other long after we graduate from Fuqua.
