What made you choose to attend USC Marshall?
I was admitted into the World Bachelor in Business Program, and USC Marshall was the American arm of the partnership. As a top ranked business school, I knew that it would have incredible professors, amazing resources, and the best opportunities to explore any path I wanted to pave for myself.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college:
Be more honest with yourself - don't just apply to the universities that people say you "should" apply to, but apply to the places that have programs and curriculum that inspire you. Of course there needs to be a level of pragmatism when it comes to finding "safety schools" and the like, but really take the time to find universities and specific programs that speak to you without listening to the noise.

USC activities/general hobbies:
I'm an incredibly curious person, and that translates into the fact that I'm a collector of hobbies and a deep web diver. Learning how to use new programs like Illustrator (I love sketching!) to teaching myself how to crochet crop tops, I enjoy exploring anything that piques an interest.

Why do you love Los Angeles?
LA is a city that truly celebrates creative exploration and expression - it has the potential to take in dreamers and make them doers.

What global experiences have you had in college?
Being a part of WBB, my entire program is global. From LA, to Hong Kong, to Milan, it has been an absolutely transformative experience that has taught me infinite lessons about myself and the world around me.

What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at Marshall?
Marshall offers a fantastic career fair and other networking opportunities that I've attended.

Favorite USC Marshall class:
MKT 450: Consumer Behavior and Marketing and BUAD 497: Strategic Management
