Undergraduate School/Major: I have a BS in accounting from Ithaca College in upstate New York.

Prior to Booth: I spent five years as an auditor at Ernst & Young in New York. I also did a rotation in the Ernst & Young transaction advisory practice.

Activities: Investment Banking Group, Emerging Markets Group, Chicago African Business Group, African American MBA Association, Wine Club and Chicago Women in Business.

Plans after graduation: I plan to work for an investment bank in New York or private equity firm with a focus on emerging markets (sub-saharan Africa). I also plan to continue to support education of orphans in Zimbabwe. I also plan travel a lot before I officially start working again.

What has been your favorite part of Chicago Booth so far? Random Walk to El Salvador, Google group emails, and the fact that Booth is all about making your own choices regarding how you want to experience your two years of Business school. The resources are there for you to pick and choose what's best for you!

What do you consider a "must visit" place in Chicago? Gleacher study rooms with huge window that face the river and give a whole new meaning to studying.

What do you miss most about your home town/country? The beautiful views driving down Christmas Pass on way to my mom's, and my nephew and nieces.
