I was born and raised in the frozen Chicago suburbs and made my way to Washington, D.C. for my undergraduate studies. Following graduation, I worked for a tech startup in D.C. before making my way west and relocating in L.A. In addition to working with our international applicants, I’m currently earning a Master’s Degree in our Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism here at USC.

Why USC?
The combination of rigorous academic programs and top-tier faculty coupled with USC’s location in Los Angeles offers a truly one-of-kind experience.

Admission Advice:
College is all about learning, not just in the classroom but most importantly about yourself. Look for schools that will challenge and help you grow in all aspects of your life.
