Biggest hurdle you’ve overcome?

I was raised by a single, immigrant mother, and had no idea what college meant for my future, let alone professional/financial services. The very nature of my hometown is also unforgiving for people with limited resources and networks. I have been fortunate to have not only attended university, but also make an impact in and outside the community.

What are your plans for the future?

To obtain a career in investment banking and to provide mentorship for students from my hometown seeking a career in financial services.
