2017 Internship:

Student groups:

One important part of business school are the extra curricular options. At Booth, you have the opportunity to participate in whatever you might like and everything is student-driven. I've been involved with the Woman's Soccer Team here. When I first came, the soccer club only had a men's team. I got together with a couple of friends, and now we have more than twenty girls on the team. We are playing in the Youth Chicago League.

life in Chicago:

Chicago is a big city but has the feeling of a smaller city because people are very warm. When you walk around, they smile at you. I really like that Midwestern culture. I also love the fact that we live in The Loop right next to everything.  We walk around and restaurants, bars, the lake, and the beautiful skyline of Chicago are right there. It's amazing.
