What made you choose to attend USC Marshall?
Initially it was just that USC Marshall is a renowned business school with top ranking professors and a large alumni network. However when I began to do my own research I found that Marshall supports their students not only academically but professionally too. Marshall provides students academic & career counseling, professional mentorship programs, and Marshall exclusive career fairs for students to interact with future employers. The last aspect that drew me to USC Marshall was their study abroad program with 36 different partnered schools!

What advice do you wish you had known while applying to college?
It will all work out in the end, don't stress. You'll go to the college you're meant to be at.

What are your USC activities/general hobbies?
Delta Phi Epsilon (International Relations Society), Hermanas Unidas, Alpha Chi Omega, Global Brigades, Experiential Learning Center

Why do you love Los Angeles?
The beach is a metro ride away and the mountains are only a 2 hour car drive with you and some of your best friends. You get the best of both worlds in that sense. There's always something to do and it's difficult to get bored with all the events going on in DTLA.

What global experiences have you taken part in at USC? Please list all Marshall International Trips you have attended, include program name(s) and location(s).
USC Marshall IEP, National University of Singapore (Spring 2020)

What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at Marshall?
Human Resources Intern at Aflac, Talent Acquisition Intern at Sizigi

What is your favorite USC Marshall Class?
BUAD 304: Organizational Behavior and Leadership with Professor Nelson
