Daytime MBA | Class of 2014

 

I’m from rural southern Maryland, so when I graduated from high school, the first thing I did was run off to New York City and enroll at NYU. I realized during my first week of class that chemistry was not for me, and I became a die-hard international relations major. According to my transcript, I also had three minors (Spanish, history, and politics).

I’m the only person I know who has three minors. Why didn’t I just double-major?

Immediately after I graduated, I joined the Peace Corps! After two years of grassroots development work in Georgia (the country … you’d be surprised how many people don’t know it exists), I came back to New York and worked as a recruitment and assessment specialist for Peace Corps for almost four years.

This past summer I interned in consulting with McKinsey & Company in sunny Dallas, where I only spent one evening at the world’s largest honky-tonk.

Fuqua Activities: I’m keeping up this whole “save the world” thing through my involvement with the Net Impact Club, and I’m also teaching consulting casing as a member of the Duke Management Consulting Club cabinet. I’m shooting for a concentration in social entrepreneurship, which means I’ll get to take full advantage of the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship here on campus.
