One thing you wish you had known when applying for MBA programs? I wish I had paid attention to whether the school was a commuter school versus campus-centered.

Why did you choose Booth? A few reasons, actually. I wanted to round out my business acumen with marketing and strategy core principles. I wanted to pivot into a more strategy-focused/growth role in Tech. Plus, I wanted to surround myself with diverse backgrounds and experiences to learn more about the world and myself.

Fun Fact: I had a web show with my best friend in high school.
