My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Keeping up with application deadlines and GMAT prep while working in a full-time job

About me: Unlike many international students at London Business School, I'm a true Londoner, born and bred. Before joining LBS, I managed to gain diverse experiences interning in Investment Banking, Consulting and VC. These internships helped narrow down my interests prior to starting on the MFA. Having only studied a few Finance modules during my undergraduate degree, LBS' broad Finance curriculum really appealed to me. Outside of academics, I'm passionate about football, make time for the gym and learnt how to DJ as a hobby.

During my time at LBS, I've been a part of the PE/VC club's Exec Committee which has helped deepen my understanding of the sector. Additionally, inspired by the impact previous ambassadors had on my own application journey, I joined the Student Ambassador programme this year. I can't stress enough the value of connecting with LBS alumni if you're considering applying. Their insights into life at LBS are invaluable!

Three topics I can be approached about: Application advice, London life, PE/VC Club
