What are your areas of interest at USC and Marshall?
Cybersecurity, consulting, public policy, and law

What made you choose to attend USC Marshall?
The hands-on business curriculum and the Trojan Family Network were two of the many things that made me choose to attend USC Marshall. I knew that I was looking for not only the opportunity to take core business classes right away but a community of individuals that could help me grow and succeed, and Marshall gave me both right from the start. Moreover, USC's location in Los Angeles gives me the chance to be simultaneously involved in on-campus and off-campus experiences outside of the academic curriculum, and consequently, I felt like USC Marshall was the best place for my professional and personal development.

What advice do you wish you had known while applying to college?
Finding the college that is the best fit for you should be your biggest priority! You'll be spending the next four years of your life there, so be proactive in doing your research and asking questions. Find out about the academics, events, food, extracurriculars, student life, and everything else possible, and don't be afraid to reach out to current college students as well!

What are your USC activities/general hobbies?
USC Activities: Marshall Student Ambassadors, CybOrg, The USC Consulting Club, The International Consulting Club at USC, International Student Assembly, Undergraduate Student Government, Descent Magazine, Marshall Transfer Success Program Hobbies: Night drives, exploring Southern California, esports, fashion,

Why do you love Los Angeles?
I love Los Angeles because there are limitless opportunities in the city! You could be at the Santa Monica Pier an hour after having explored the financial district of Downtown Los Angeles and eaten lunch at the countless restaurants, or you may want to check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame at night after a day at the Griffith Observatory. Regardless of what you want to do, Los Angeles will have that and more!

What global experiences have you taken part in at USC? Please list all Marshall International Trips you have attended, include program name(s) and location(s)
None yet!

What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at Marshall?
I interned at Andersen Tax LLC over the past summer, and I will be interning at EY-Parthenon this upcoming summer. For both of these internship opportunities, I found Marshall's semesterly recruiting fair, Marshall Recruiter Reception, as well as on-campus recruiting to be extremely helpful.

What is your favorite USC Marshall Class and why?
MOR 492: Global Strategy with Professor Christine El Haddad! This class was not only my introduction to international strategy and consulting but taught me an incredible wealth of fundamentals that I still utilize to this day. It's also the reason I chose to declare my Marshall emphasis in Leadership and Innovation!
