What surprised you most about Marshall?
The tight knit community and how well-rounded our class is. Our class has such a diversity of interests that you’re likely to find someone who is interested in the same things as you!

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
I wish I had taken time out to travel some more and taken an accounting class before starting the first term.

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
I am an MGSA Career Development Rep. for Core C (C Suite!!!) and part of the Honor Committee. I also co-hold the AVP position for Impact Investing for Marshall Net Impact.

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
TAM Day during Orientation was so much fun, especially because Core C won!

Favorite USC Marshall Core Class:
Contemporary Issues in Competitive Strategy with Professor Fiss

Which clubs are you involved in?
Almost all of them! I especially enjoy Mindful Marshall, American Finance Assocation and Net Impact!

Core:
C

Why did you choose Marshall?
I wanted to be somewhere where people were humble, approachable (sharp minds, not sharp elbows) and diverse in their background/thinking/aspirations. Marshall has surpassed that expectation!

Languages:
Urdu, French and English plus I can smile and nod through a Spanish/Portuguese conversation!

Undergraduate:
Boston University (Go Terriers!)
