Favorite quote and why:

"Do or do not, there is no try." - Yoda

Why? - It seems silly to quote Star Wars, and I'm not even a huge fan, but this quote stuck with me. I believe we all have the ability to accomplish the personal and professional goals we set for ourselves. "Trying" is simply the first (or second, or third...) step in "doing" something we set out to do.

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor and why?

Best memory from your first year in the MBA program:

MBAP HOMECOMING TAILGATE

What story does your family always tell about you?

When I was a kid I was spoiled. There are videos of me opening gifts in a fury, only to realize they are clothes and say something ungrateful such as "Oh...it's clothes..."

What advice would you like to provide incoming students?

You can do it, I promise. You'll get overwhelmed, but that's part of the experience.
