“I came to Anderson because I am passionate about improving equity for those from underserved communities and I believe that businesses will play an increasingly large role in shaping that future. I think that an impact mindset is crucial for all MBAs, as they will be the ones making decisions that will affect people, communities, and the world around us. Through Impact@Anderson, I've been exposed to various forms of social impact and different thought leaders who have changed the way I view business and the role it can play in changing the world for the better.”
