Why did you choose this program? I chose this program to expand my horizons in global business and the international environment from three world-class universities on three different continents. I wanted to have the opportunity to use three career networks and combine my career goals with my passion for traveling.

What do you enjoy about the program so far? I really enjoy the diversity of cultures, enthusiasm among my classmates and three university staffs, the diversity of the teaching systems, and the overall feel at the University of Virginia (sports facilities, community, nightlife, etc.).

 What has surprised you about the program so far? So far I have been surprised by the college life and organizations at the University of Virginia. The University has so many services to offer, and I have enjoyed being a student immensely.

Fun facts: I have traveled to 30 countries overall and lived in five different countries in the last year (China, Poland, Italy, Malaysia, and USA).

Hobbies: football, hiking, geopolitics, motorbikes, road trips, and exploring new cultures and environments.
