Why I Chose Fuqua

I was familiar with the MMS program through friends who were pursuing their degrees. MMS presented an opportunity to focus on my academic and career development in a way I couldn’t as an undergraduate. And while I’d had three summer internships throughout college, I was still uncertain about my career path. I felt that pursuing this degree would further my intellectual and career growth

During Fuqua

Perhaps the most enlightening part of the team experience at Fuqua is the diversity. My team consists of five people, representing five different countries of origin from 4 different continents. Learning how to come together and work towards a common goal has been one of my favorite experiences.

After Fuqua

Nothing quite compares to the energy and intensity of a trading floor, which is an aspect of the financial services industry that really excites me. Next year I’ll be working at Citi in their Sales & Trading 2-year rotational program in New York City.

5 Random Things About Me

  1. I played lacrosse all four years of college and thrive in environments where I have to make quick decisions under pressure - probably why I’m drawn to sales and trading.
  2. I’m a competitive sailor.
  3. I’m a huge country music fan and also a former musician - spent 11 years as a classical and jazz trumpeter.
  4. I’m a Development Ambassador.
  5. Some of my favorite local experiences are the food truck rodeos; any Duke Basketball game in Cameron (especially against UNC); the Durham Bulls, which has a better attendance and atmosphere than many MLB ballparks; and the State Fair.
