Why Yale EM:

Why not? World class faculty who are also extremely down to earth. These are the people I want to mentor me to achieve great things in the future.

Random factoid:

Although I grew up scared of heights, I’ve engaged in various activities to the contrary including bungee jumping off the highest bungee in the world. Stay tuned for my next adventure.
