My Path to McKinsey

Early in my studies, I founded a youth organization to bridge the gap between young women and the workforce. After four years, I decided to pursue a Master’s degree in international development, with a focus on education and human capital development. After graduation, I worked for a government agency and then, the World Bank on issues related to labor and social protection. From there, I realized that I wanted to develop a comprehensive toolkit of knowledge and skills in the area of human capital development. McKinsey was the right place to do that.

Expectations for McKinsey

Because McKinsey is such a well-known, established institution, I often find myself surprised at the flexibility. You truly can “make your own McKinsey” and develop a path based on your passions and strengths. This flexibility has led to some of the most meaningful experiences in my professional career.

A Global Firm

I absolutely love working with people around the world on the issues I am most passionate about. For example, I have worked with senior economists at the McKinsey Global Institute on projects related to labor and economic development. These connections have helped shape my understanding of global trends at a much deeper level.
