What do you love about SWIB? I love that SWIB provides a safe space for women and allies to openly discuss any topic related to business school and beyond. SWIB also provides amazing role models for prospective students and MBA1's; we are lucky to have such impressive classmates!

Favorite SWIB Memory: I participated in the SWIB interview day last February as a prospective student and loved meeting all of the current SWIB members and hearing their experiences at Stern. It was a memorable day and a big part of my decision to come to Stern.

Favorite Part about Stern: The community. Everyone at Stern is so inclusive which makes all aspects of the MBA experience more enjoyable.

Advice for women considering pursuing business school: Visit campuses and talk to current students to get an idea of what the culture is like at the school. It can be easy to get caught up in the rankings but it is more important to find a community that resonates with you and your goals.

Fun Fact: I'm obsessed with sweet potatoes.
