What made you choose to attend USC Marshall?
I applied because it was a top-ranked business program at a school with a great sports and social scene and in a great location, and I ultimately chose USC because it provided the best financial aid.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college:
1. To truly get a sense of what it is like to attend a school, you should reach out to, and maybe even visit (if possible), current students. They will provide insights into the parts of day-to-day student life that ultimately define much of your college experience, aspects that promotional materials, statistics, tours, etc. won't properly convey. Online forums and social media are also good places to find this information.

2. Your post-graduation goals will likely change during your time in college, so don't base your decision completely on them.

USC activities/general hobbies:
Trojan Consulting Group
KXSC Radio
Hobbies/Interests: music, longform journalism, effective altruism, USC and MN sports, film/TV

Why do you love Los Angeles?
There is an incredibly vast array of experiences and activities in the city - I have lived here for over two years and have only scratched the surface of what LA has to offer. It is a truly cosmopolitan city and continues to grow rapidly, and is the hub for a lot of American culture.

What global experiences have you had in college?
Global Leadership Program, GLP Internship in Taiwan, IEP in Budapest in Spring 2019

What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at Marshall?
RedString Match - Market Research Intern (Taipei City, Taiwan)
U.S. Bank - Business Analyst Intern (Minneapolis, MN)
