Why did you choose ESTEEM?
I came to ESTEEM because of the capstone projects. I wanted hands on experience on taking an idea, or concept, and creating a go-to market strategy and all the analysis that goes along with it.
What's your capstone and why are you excited about it?
Deloitte is an international professional services network headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Deloitte is the largest professional services network by revenue and number of professionals in the world and is considered one of the Big Four accounting firms. Part of the services they provide is a team that focuses solely on the future. The NExT (Novel and Exponential Technologies) team at Deloitte senses, and makes sense of, what’s new and next in tech. Specifically, the team helps its consulting clients dodge headwinds, harness tailwinds, and arrive at their preferred tomorrows slightly ahead of schedule. For my capstone project, I will be working directly with and on the NExT Team. She will be integrated into their environment, conferences and more. I will be primarily responsible for researching emerging technology and will assist in curating a collection of discoveries to help drive profitable growth and/or transformation for Deloitte’s global clients.
What do you hope to do after ESTEEM?
I hope to open my career opportunities to be more than just a software developer or program manager. I am unsure where I want to go in life, but I want my options to be bigger those the current ones.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to travel. I've been to 25 countries, and I'm known for impulsively buying airfare.
