Sandra Tsikor, hailing from Ghana, brings a wealth of experience in consulting and strategy consulting for nonprofits to her time at HBS. She emphasizes the diverse learning opportunities at the school, from learning from classmates and industry leaders to organizing panels at events like the Africa Business Conference. Sandra’s post-HBS goals include working in a fintech company focused on financial inclusion and becoming an expert in the field.

Kirt Matthews, originally from Indiana, has a background as a Strategy Consultant at Accenture and interned in investment banking at Goldman Sachs. His highlight at HBS has been the connections he’s made with his section and the support and friendship he’s found there.
