Q. Introduce yourself to your classmates!
A. Hi everyone, I'm Margaret! I am a double bruin and have been living in LA for the past ten years. I ran my own door-to-door business in college, and have been working in fashion retail buying for the past five years. I've learned a lot in the process, but I'm now focused on pursuing a career in tech.

Q. Why did you decide to attend UCLA Anderson — #whyAnderson?
A. I went to UCLA for my undergraduate studies so it only made sense to return for my MBA as a double bruin! UCLA has always been a good cultural fit for me personally, and this was reinforced through my conversations with second year students during the application process. While every business school prides themselves on their sense of community, I truly believe Anderson students and faculty went the extra mile in taking time out of their days to support me through my decision. They were in touch every step of the way, and I felt like I was an Anderson student before accepting admission.

Q. What are you most excited about at UCLA Anderson?
A. I'm most excited to be surrounded by classmates, faculty, and alumni who are intent on driving change. From my past experiences, I've learned that being a part of a community of ambitious and motivated individuals is not only contagious and incredibly impactful, but can generate tremendous momentum. And while driving change is a key focus at Anderson, I love that sharing success is just as important. I can't wait to discover the things we'll achieve together in the future!
