“A new moral principle is emerging, which holds that the only authority deserving one’s allegiance is that which is freely and knowingly granted by the led to the leader in response to, and in proportion to, the clearly evident servant stature of the leader. Those who choose to follow this principle will not casually accept the authority of existing institutions. Rather, they will freely respond only to individuals who are chosen as leaders because they are proven and trusted as servants. To the extent that this principle prevails in the future, the only truly viable institutions will be those that are predominately servant led.” Servant Leadership, by Robert K. Greenleaf.

Where are you from?
Northern California—I graduated from Rio Lindo Academy and my hometown is Willits, California. However, I recently moved to Benton Harbor, where I bought and am renovating a house.
Why did you decide to study International Business?
At first I became interested in AU’s architecture program. I visited during my senior year at Rio Lindo and saw the SBA. After seeing the International Business degree (I love traveling), I switched to business.
What do you enjoy about AU’s School of Business Administration?
I feel like its perfect for International Business. There are so many international faculty and students—I enjoy hanging out with friends from China, the Philippines, and all over the world.
Who is your favorite SBA professor?
Dr. Sarkar. I took Operations Management with him, and it was eye opening to hear about his real-life experiences in Whirlpool and around the world—India , China, Italy, and here in the USA.
What do you enjoy about International Business?
Business equips me to make a difference in the world and an impact with my life. I love meeting people, traveling, and learning about other cultures. There’s lots of potential for business overseas right now, especially with development work.
What kind of company or organization would you like to work for?
A microlending organization working in a developing country or one with unrealized market potential.
