Priscilla pursues MBA at UC Berkeley

“Growing up in an immigrant household, as a first-generation high school and college student, higher education was always a far-fetched dream of mine. Through countless obstacles and roadblocks, failures and successes, I’ve learned the strength of persistence and humility. In fact, I’d like to share my Haas 6-word story with you, Humility helped me find my power. I will forever be reminded and grateful of my humbled beginnings".

“It’s been a whirlwind of a journey to get to where I am today, and I couldn’t have done it without my greatest supporters. To my family, friends, colleagues, mentors (special shoutout to Warren Brown and Katherine Kennedy), and Summer Search.  Thank you for believing in me; thank you for pushing me forward; and thank you for cheering me on as I embark on my next adventure! Go Bears!”
