“I knew that I could come to Tuck and really own my experience so that I could become whatever I wanted.”

Read My Story


At first, I felt a little intimidated by the business school experience, but Tuck’s small class size, intimate character, and supportive atmosphere made me feel welcome. I knew that I could come to Tuck and really own my experience so that I could become whatever I wanted.


Professor Katharina Lewellen and her Corporate Finance course left a big impression on me. I’ve never really thought of myself as a quantitative person, but she did such a great job teaching the class that it inspired me to explore it further. Now that I’m going into a rotational program, I’m thinking about corporate finance, and I don’t think I would’ve thought it was possible if she hadn’t taught me. Another professor I’ll never forget is Curt Welling, who taught the elective course, Business and Society. He taught me how to analyze societal issues through an objective lens and craft a solid argument for possible solutions.


There are so many fun memories, but here are a few that come to mind: Leading the choreography at the Diwali party at the beginning of my first year—I had never done Indian dancing before. Several Tuckies and I spent a week learning how to ski at Killington, which was great. Planning the Business & Society Conference—taking a major event from a vision to execution—was so fulfilling.


Every day, Tuck showers you with opportunities. I feel very lucky to have come here and to have had so many doors open for me. Because of my experience here, I now feel confident enough to express my point of view or ask for help when I need it. Thanks to Tuck, I see further than just what’s next. Now I can more fully navigate my environment and see what I need to do to get where I want to go.
