What surprised you most about Marshall?
Just how engaging, collaborative, and supportive my class is. My classmates truly embody the spirit of One Marshall, helping each other be successful, like leading core study sessions, and celebrating wins together.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
There are so many opportunities, events, and activities to get involved with! And everything picks up quickly once you get on campus. It's impossible to have everything you want to do mapped out before business school, but it definitely helps if you planned ahead so that you can get the most out of the Marshall experience. And don't be afraid to try something new or different! Chances are there will be another person there learning with you, or helping you learn!

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
AVP of Finance - Marshall Data Analytics Club, AVP of Finance - Latino Management Business Association, Marshall MBA Ambassador

What is your favorite USC Marshall experience:
The International Mixer was a great way to meet and learn more about my Fellow Marshall students! I had so much fun getting to hear more about other cultures my peers represent, and try delicious food and drink from all around the world.

What is your favorite USC Marshall core class:
Contemporary Issues in Competitive Strategy with Professor Peer Fiss

Which clubs are you involved in?
Marshall Data Analytics Club, Latino Management Business Association, The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, High Tech Association, Entrepreneur & Venture Management Association

Why did you choose Marshall?
Marshall's commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. Marshall made me feel welcome even before I became a student, and has truly lived up to the reputation of its strong student and alumni community. The Trojan Family is real. The PRIME program was also a major point of interest for me.
