Favorite quote and why:

Keep it simple... make it fun.

Is my motto.

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

This is a tough one. If it could be anyone, how about for a board of mentors with Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Warren Buffet. Great visionaries, leaders and philanthropists... can't go wrong with them.  

Best memory from your first year in the MBA program:

I don’t think there is a moment in the program that is the most memorable, but instead a sequence of events that truly changed the way I think about business and life in general. Is great to look back and realize how different my life is today compared to a year ago. It’s been a great year.

What story does your family always tell about you?

They always say how I seem to be the most calm and quiet of all my siblings but the one that gave the most trouble…. Always taking me to the hospital.

What advice would you like to provide incoming students?

Communication and time management are probably two of the most important skills you will need in the program. Always keep your team, family and work in the loop; you will definitely need their support along the program.

Any additional unique facts you would like to share:

Time goes faster than usual once you start the program. Be aware of other things going on outside of the classroom.
