    • What do you currently do?
      • I am currently a second-year student at Harvard Business School
    • What excites you most about your career path?
      • I am excited about transitioning into a technology investing role. I love meeting founders building transformative companies and solving challenging problems.
    • How have you been working during COVID?
      • I was lucky enough to do my summer internship in person, which was great! But I am now working on a number of investing projects virtually and it’s definitely a challenge too.
    • What challenges do you hope to change in the industry you’re currently in?
      • Finance is notoriously slow to change and I hope to eventually be in a position where I can encourage other women to join and stay and make their way to the top and advocate for change from the inside.
    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      • I’m still figuring that part out!
    • What does success mean to you?
      • Success to me is all about finding a place where I feel intellectually stimulated, challenged and happy working with the people who are smart, inclusive and collaborative.
    • What makes you feel confident?
      • Being well prepared, digging into the detail of problems and having a team I can rely on makes me feel confident. As does dressing the part!
    • Who/what inspires you?
      • I am inspired by women around the world who have overcome incredible hardships to get where they are today and who reach out to lift up younger women coming behind them.
    • How did you get into blogging?
      • I love travelling (pre-COVID) and it started as a way of sharing my photos with my friends and family when I was abroad.
