Daytime MBA | Class of 2017

 

I am a proud Uruguayan who has come to business school to learn how to generate a bigger impact in the world. In my home country, I have focused my 7-plus year career in generating social impact through economic empowerment, entrepreneurship, and education.

I am the happiest person in the world at Fuqua. I have been able to pursue my passion for social entrepreneurship by co-leading the group of CASE Fellows, being a cabinet member of the Net Impact Club, and taking on projects that have led me to Kenya, India, California, and an understanding of the reality of refugees in the Triangle. I have also engaged extensively in leadership development initiatives, such as the COLE Leadership Fellowship and student-run programs like LEADS and LCE.

I see Durham as home now, where I can actively engage with an integrative community that works towards the development of all of its members.
