Why did you choose McCourt? Because of its rigorous program, faculty, and for its location in DC as I would like to work for an IO.
What professional/ work experience did you have prior to coming to McCourt? I used to work in the fast fashion industry until I realized things have to change for the betterment of humanity and combating inequality. I switched to working with small textile suppliers, connecting them to brands and designers in Europe, and realized that for many the struggle to grow came from inadequate policies, so I decided that was what I should focus on to be able to change things and hence why I am here!
What has been the best part of your experience so far? It is a lot of work, but I have some of the best professors I had in my life. I am learning more than ever, and my classmates are some of the most interesting people I have ever met.
