Why Fuqua

Born in Greece and raised in Belgium, I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2014 as a biology major, focused on marine biology. My passion is sustainability, and while I initially thought the answers lie in the sciences, I quickly came to realize that I could have the greatest impact by finding ways to implement scientific learnings in a real-world context. So, I chose Duke University because I could complete a dual degree (MEM/MBA) and pursue my interests in both sustainability and business to better promote sustainability in the business world and create positive social change. Fuqua’s focus on impactful change and consequential leadership inspired me to strive to become a leader in the corporate sustainability world.

At Fuqua

True to my ‘green’ self, I’m a cabinet member of the Net Impact Club and have helped organize the Sustainable Business and Social Impact (SBSI) conference, the Duke University Energy Conference, and ClimateCAP. I am also the co-president of Fuqua’s European Business Club, a cabinet member in both the MBA Association Service & Sustainability and Student Life cabinets, and a Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum (FCCP) fellow. I’m an active member of the Consulting Club, the Marketing Club, FCCP, and FuquaVision. Outside of Fuqua, I’m involved in the greater Duke community, as an executive director at the Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators program, a cabinet member of the Graduate Basketball Committee, and a graduate usher for basketball games.
