I look forward to sharing all about my experiences during my time as an MPA. I chose to come to Texas obviously because of its prestige of being the #1 Graduate Accounting Program in the country, but for many of the other fantastic aspects of the program. The amazing faculty, the extensive curriculum, the study abroad opportunity were all main deciding factors. I attended the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. for my undergraduate career, which I very much enjoyed and am looking forward to continuing my education here at the University of Texas at Austin. In my spare time, I like to dance (mostly hip hop these days) and watch television. I also love to explore new places to eat and have already begun my eating adventures around this unique city. I hope you enjoy my blog and please leave comments if you have something to say or want me to write about a certain topic. Thanks!
