After my experience working at Techstars Boston, I worked to build Startup Jamaica, a startup accelerator in Kingston, Jamaica. I worked to build program curriculum and continue to mentor and help the companies in the program.
More importantly about me, I know how to hustle because I have always had to. My family struggled financially when growing up. I knew that I had to excel academically in order to go to college. I earned a full scholarship to UNC and committed to work as hard as I can to get where I want in life. When I decided to go to business school, I knew HBS was where I wanted to go and did everything I could to get in, which was not easy (including bombing the GMAT until I finally crushed it!). I now try to encourage everyone to go after what they want, even if it seems impossible.
