I’m a bit of an anomaly in the MMS program, since I majored in Fashion and Textile Management at North Carolina State University. My path to business is a little non-traditional, although coming to Duke University for the MMS program was also the perfect opportunity for me to expand upon my undergraduate education.

My parents are from Iran, and they met in England. I was born in London, so I’m 100% Persian/Iranian, although I was raised in Raleigh, NC, so I consider myself a local.

Having worked for Diane von Furstenberg and Abercrombie & Fitch, I came to the MMS program to strengthen my analytical skills. The Marketing and Consulting clubs were extremely helpful in my educational quest. I also learned a lot about the consulting industry through my experiences as a Career Ambassador.
