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.

Trying to redeem myself for all the gorgeous outdoorsy things I missed out on last year. This is a start.

My kind of Saturday: A spontaneous day trip to this surprising gem of a beach and brutally honest conversations on life, loss, and love with the coolest uncool person I know. (Also, a come-from-behind win on a stressful "Name That 90s/00s Song/Artist" roadtrip game because I just gots to gloat. ⭐️)

Silence. Solitude. Siesta.

A proper Libe Slope sunset to cap off my first year at #CornellMBA. Time flies, don't blink.
