The moment I got there and started meeting the other kids, I saw how smart everyone was and how great it was that Wharton brings together these innovative thinkers. It was so cool to hear the thoughts of everyone from across the world. I learned at Wharton that it would be important to have a foundation in business that might eventually spark innovation.
