 "At Smith, I was a Venture Capital and Private Equity fellow, a program that introduced me to a career I'm passionate about and taught me the basics of being a good investor, lessons I still rely on today. I also connected with smart and talented classmates, professors, and mentors who have remained wonderful friends and colleagues post-graduation. I would not be where I am today without the support I received from Smith!"
