Growing up as a first generation American and watching my parents run their small restaurant, I was curious about how to run a successful and impactful business. After graduating from Barnard College with a degree in economics, I spent five years in the advertising industry working at large and boutique agencies.At the smaller agency, I was exposedto a diverse set of clients; I gained an understanding of media strategy at the larger agency. I decided to attend business school in order to establish a deeper foundation of how business functions work together to drive success and broaden the impact of my career. I choose Ross because of it's emphasis on action based learning and the collaborative student driven culture. I knew Ross was the perfect fit for me as soon as I stepped on campus for the first time during GBR.
