Class of 2020

My life has taken an interesting path to Ross. I went to undergrad with absolutely no idea on what I wanted to do as an adult. Cut to senior year, I was stuck with a double major I wasn't interested in and a contract signed to join Peace Corps Cambodia as an education volunteer. Two years later, I knew I wanted a career in marketing but had no experience (and also no money!). So after a stint working construction, I found my way back to Chicago in a marketing role at a financial services/data analytics firm. While I was learning a lot, the passion wasn't there. I realized what I really wanted to be was in front of me my entire life; a career working in consumer packaged goods/retail. Although I've only been here at Ross for a short time, I know that I made the right choice in a school that will help me reach this goal. The support that I have received from MBA2s, career coaches, clubs, and alums has been more than I ever could have asked for and I'm excited for what's to come.
