I am a former student athlete (Duke/Uconn women's basketball). I have worked in education for the past 7 years in Harlem. I enjoy working out and reading. My favorite podcasts are: The Read, Ted Talks and Snap Judgment. Finally, while I listen to most genres of music, I am particularly fond of classic jazz like Frank, Chet Baker, Ella, and more contemporary sounds like Amy and Adele.
What made you consider business school?
I found that I was financially illiterate and unable to hold sound conversations outside of the education sphere and that made me uncomfortable. Moreover, I wanted to change careers/functions.
What are you most excited about in terms of your time in business school?
I am excited to network and to join different clubs.
Who are some leaders (in the LGBT community, in business, or in society) that most inspire you?
Tough question, but people that I am following the most: Lena Waithe, Issa Rae, Laverne Cox.
What's one thing everyone should know about you?
I am tall and have been this height since I was 13, so yes, I have been asked the questions you are going to ask me, a MILLION and one times. Depending on how you ask them, however, I am more inclined to indulge you in a response.
