program that really stood out and shone. The reason that it blew away all of my expectations was due to the SWIB Conference last year. I was one of the women chosen to interview during that time period, and I was amazed at the caliber of the speakers and the resonance of the topics. It was such a great opportunity to meet other female applicants and to see the strength and support of the female community at Stern. I immediately knew that Stern was the right place for me and that I wanted to be involved in SWIB. Prior to this MBA program, I was an investment banker at Wells Fargo Securities. My focus was on the consumer and retail industries, but more specifically, luxury and beauty. My boss at Wells Fargo Securities, one of the few female Managing Directors, is respected in these industries and is a Board Member of Cosmetic Executive Women. During my undergraduate career, I participated in marketing internships at both Giorgio Armani and VIETRI, an Italian tableware company. In both of these roles, I worked with strong, hard-working, female CEOs. I have seen firsthand the value of a strong network and how important it is to have female mentors. I want to be a part of SWIB because the most important component of an MBA program is the people around you. By strengthening and supporting my fellow Stern females, it benefits all of us. The Conference is such an important tool, and I want to help make this year’s Conference the best one yet. Each of my prior jobs and internships were obtained solely by my perseverance and ambition, without the help of career services. I have a talent for seeking out, and even creating, opportunities for myself and others. I would like to put these talents to work for SWIB. I am most interested in serving on the Conference Committee in the operational role because I an excellent organizer and planner. However, I am willing to fill whatever role is needed because I think that it is an important endeavor, and I plan to help in any way possible.
