About me: My academic journey began with a Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management from Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland. During my undergrad, I developed an interest in finance, particularly wealth and asset management. I am drawn to the everchanging nature of the financial market, especially in volatile business conditions. During my recent internship at UBS Wealth Management, I assisted client advisors in developing and implementing highly effective financial plans that breathe life into clients' financial aspirations. I also had the opportunity to gain invaluable insights into asset allocation and investment research on international equities, and this experience reinforced my goal to pursue asset and wealth management as a postLBS career. Looking forward, I am excited to leverage LBS's world-class faculty and unparalleled career service to better prepare myself for the professional world. Beyond the classroom, I'm n nature enthusiast. My lifelong passion in horse riding has taught me the art of communication, not just with majestic steeds but with my inner self. I am also an avid scuba diver. Exploring the unknown beneath the waves pushes me to face uncertainty and fear and enhances my sense of focus, which also plays a significant role in my professional life.

Three topics I can be approached about: Applying to and studying at LBS, Moving to London, LBS life and community.
