Condoleezza Rice once said that if she had been waiting for a black, female Soviet specialist role model to begin her career, she would still be waiting. I became an ATLAS Fellow because I, too, am done waiting. I am excited to be a part of a community that represents the diverse and inclusive future of finance. I am happy to finally have a community to look to for guidance as I navigate college life. And finally, I am eager to be the change and representation in the professional world that I’ve been waiting to see.
