Why did you donate to Pay It Forward MBA?

I believe in the transformative power of diversity and access. I donated to Pay it Forward MBA because I feel that it is incumbent upon our collective communities to build a path for those who come behind us. I would not be here if it were not for others who helped me. This is an avenue to do the same.

What did you learn most during your time at University of Texas at Austin, McCombs School of Business?

One of the biggest lessons I learned was about the intentionality of design, not in only business but life. To create change in the boardroom or in society there are very deliberate steps and actions that must be taken. The McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin taught me to understand, create and identify opportunities to move the world forward.
