"My most treasured experience of the BSBA program was my first time out of the country with the GLIMPSE South America program. Personally, the opportunity was nothing short of amazing."

My career goals

"I want a career in consulting and later, near the time I retire, I want to start a non-profit that focuses on the professional development of inner city youth."

Why I chose UNC Kenan-Flagler

  • UNC Kenan-Flagler’s reputation of harnessing leadership potential and developing competent and successful business leaders strongly influenced my decision to apply.
  • As founder and president of the Minority Business Student Alliance, I aim to strengthen and expand the minority community at the business school.
  • I use the emphasis that UNC Kenan-Flagler places on leadership to aid my personal continuing quest to become a better leader.

My experience of the BSBA program at UNC

"My most treasured experience of the BSBA program was my first time out of the country with the GLIMPSE South America program. Personally, the opportunity was nothing short of amazing. Professionally, I received insight into two of the most rapidly emerging economies in the world in Santiago de Chile and Sao Paulo, Brazil. I now understand the challenges and opportunities that both countries face when it comes to doing business at home and on a global level. I also met amazing people that I keep in contact with to this day. This two-week immersion is the reason I decided to study abroad for an entire semester this coming year."
