Two-year MBA '18

Age: 25
Hometown: Manila, Philippines

Why I chose Johnson

I chose Johnson primarily for its Performance Learning approach and the emphasis it gives into bridging theory and practice. I also believe that the small, collaborative community that Johnson cultivates is an ideal environment for graduate education, especially for an international student.

Adobe's cafeteria is nice, I guess. #Adobe #SanFrancisco

What a great day to NOT be in New York or New Jersey for a change. Hello, #Boston. ❤️

"Baby, it's cold outside..." - them, probably

Ugh #NewYork, what a show-off.

May your days be merry and bright. 🎄❄️ #wintervillage

All packed and purged and ready to leave the ghosts of 2016 behind. See you again in January, #Ithaca! #CornellMBA

After weeks of late nights and too-early-for-anything meetings, planning every hour of every single day, I walked out of Sage this afternoon worrying about...nothing. And I was welcomed with clear skies and beautiful fall colors because the Sun coincidentally decided to show itself again. Life just gets you sometimes. ❤️ #CornellMBA

Friday night is lit. 🔥 (No, jk, it never is. But thank heavens for back-to-back weekends in #NYC.)

When in... Westeros?

Happy #CornellHomecoming! Enjoying that football victory vs. Yale... and all the cool #CornellMBA swag. 😎 #GoBigRed

A Solitary Saturday: Needed my little dose of art to get over a tough week and to power through another one.

These waves be like, "Welcome to the Quarter-Life, sucker." I could use the warmth of family and friends right about now. But thanks for making a girl feel loved on her first #birthday away from home. ❤️

Exactly 660 days to graduation. And we're all in for a life-altering ride. #CornellMBA

I am definitely not in the city anymore. This thing of beauty is only a 45-minute walk from campus. ❤️
