My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Putting together the application package before the deadlines while interning in investment banking and applying for summer internships.

About me: Originally from France, I completed my Undergraduate studies in Mathematics at Lycée Sainte-Geneviève in Versailles and a MSc in Management degree at ESCP Europe in Paris and Berlin. The courses I chose and the people I met sparked my interest in finance, particularly in investment banking and in investments. During my Graduate studies, I co-presided the ESCP-HEC Finance Club, a leading international joint-finance club between HEC Paris and ESCP Europe, to organize company visits, conferences and informal breakfasts with senior executives. My interest in finance grew even further after completing investment banking internships at Société Générale in Paris, and at Morgan Stanley and Moelis in London. I have chosen to further this interest and to deepen my technical knowledge through the MFA at LBS. I chose LBS for the quantitative rigor of the programme, the diversity of the LBS community, and the excellence of the professors and of my peers. Aside from academics and career, in my spare time I enjoy practicing sport and meditation, cooking, meeting new people and traveling to new places.
