What surprised you most about Marshall?
I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the class, both in terms of cultural backgrounds and career experience. The level of diversity has enriched my experience as I have been able to develop my business and global acumen just by having lunch with classmates. It was been motivating to be amongst so many ambitious individuals pursuing career opportunities they are passionate about.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
I wish I had known just how quickly things pick up. For as much as current students mentioned the rigors of adjusting to academic, recruiting, and social demands during your first year at Marshall.

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
Co-Director of Marshall Ambassadors and AVP of Alumni Relations, Latino Management and Business Association

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
By far my best experience has been representing Marshall at the National Human Capital Case Competition sponsored by Deloitte and HP. Our five-person team spent a week simulating a real-world consulting project, developing a client-ready solution that we presented during the finals at Vanderbilt University. Our ability to collaborate and the camaraderie we formed over several late nights shone through at the competition, leading us to victory over eleven top business schools. Walking through the Nashville airport with a 5-foot check for $10,000 was quite the experience.

Favorite USC Marshall Core Class:
Contemporary Issues in Competitive Strategy

Which clubs are you involved in?
Marshall Consulting and Strategy Club, Leadership and Organization Club, Marshall Business Competition Program, Marshall Sports Business Organization, Latino Management and Business Association, the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management
