My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Understanding which course and university are better suited to my goals in a short period of time.

About me: I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and grew up in a small city nearby called Cotia. There I had amazing opportunities to develop myself, learn new languages, play sports and volunteer. After high school, I went to Sao Paulo to pursue a bachelor's in economics at Insper. During my course, I participated in the student finance organization, which was a great opportunity to sharpen my financial skillset and learn more about career paths. In addition, in 2022 I did an exchange program to Universite Paris Dauphine, which allowed me to enrich my global perspective. After returning to Brazil, I interned in risk management. However, my experiences abroad showed me that there was more out there. Hence, I decided to take an unusual step for a Brazilian and applied for masters programs. I chose the MFA in order to pursue my interests in finance and behavioral economics, as well as to expand my opportunities and propel my career forward. Currently, I long to develop a career in Venture Capital or Growth Equity in London.
