My greatest challenge when applying to business school was: Choosing which master’s programme to pursue and writing my application essays

About me: I am originally from London, but I grew up as an expatriate, spending most my life in South Africa. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cape Town. It was during this time that I interned at Deloitte and PwC, as well as a consumer insights analyst for Estee Lauder Companies in London. My experience at Estee Lauder made me realise my passion for problem-solving and making data-driven decisions. I subsequently worked as a student consultant for a year with an NGO in Cape Town that advised entrepreneurs in disadvantaged communities. It was an incredible experience and highlighted to me that I need to be part of a diverse community whose values align with my own. This is what led me to LBS: an international community routed in collaboration. I hope to add to this global community by offering my unique perspective and actively being involved in the Women in Business, Black in Business, Consulting and Impact Consulting Clubs. Aside from this, I am an avid foodie and reader, and passionate about travelling and experiencing new cultures. I am really excited to share my experience thus far; please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me.

Three topics I can be approached about: Consulting; life in London; clubs at LBS
