Having worked many years in the CPG industry, I decided to pursue an MBA to make a transition into a new career field that’ll allow me to combine my passion in team building and my interest in Information Technology. Since joining the Smith community, I've been inspired by the ambitious and diverse student body to uphold and further our mission of supporting Asian and Asian American MBA students while fostering awareness and acceptance within the wider community. Through this role, I want to be able to help cultivate the diverse, inclusive, and supportive environment that makes the Smith community so special!
