I am interested in law, particularly medical malpractice to help children disabled by doctor's mistakes. I am also considering working for an intelligence agency such as the FBI or doing some type of humanitarian work.

As a major in digital entertainment, I would love writing stories for games and bringing ideas to life. Baltimore is the second largest gaming community in the country so UB is a good place to start. My next goal is to find an internship where I will get experience game testing and quality testing. Later, I will move up to writing stories and then creative director.

My professional goal is to be well-positioned in finance management. My MBA will allow me to upgrade my skills and expertise and ultimately to undertake greater responsibility in a senior management role such as Chief Financial Officer of an organization. I will look for experince to broaden my outlook such as management of people, involvement in MBA projects and investor relations so that I can serve as a strategic partner to the CEO.
