Why did you donate to Pay It Forward MBA?
I've rarely had the opportunity to pay it forward in my life and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to start. Gbenoba's ability to put this all together to help others and bring more diversity to business is unbelievably inspiring. I'm excited to be able to support this initiative and watch the incredible things Pay It Forward does!

What advice would you give to incoming MBA students?
It can be intimidating and there may be many times that you look around a room and feel like you do not belong but whoever you are and whatever your story is the world needs passionate and driven people that bring diverse perspectives. Whatever happens don't forget the reasons you decided to pursue an MBA in the first place - it will give you the motivation to always move forward, to always question the status quo, and to make the most of your MBA experience.
