What I Love About Durham

Durham is full of cool hidden gems. There are a lot of unexpected hipster bars and restaurants for millennials that also manage to keep a southern vibe. Some of my favorites are Mad Hatter’s Café & Bakeshop, The Parlour, and Dashi.

Why I Chose Fuqua

I was attracted to the program because I liked that I would be able to study at two world-class universities and be exposed to today’s most important economies. It seemed like a challenge that I wanted to take on! I also really liked the supportive aspect of Fuqua and its reputation as one of the top business schools in the U.S.

Before MMS
I was an assistant brand manager for a luxury hat brand and also worked in sales and international trade-marketing for a French perfume brand belonging to a Korean cosmetics giant.
After MMS
I would like to start a career within a distribution agency importing luxury French goods by small brands to China and its neighboring countries.
