Name: Tebo Molosiwa ’14

Current Title: financial services fellow at U.S. House of Representatives

City: Washington, D.C.

Major: economics

Minor: global business

What was your first job after MHC?: Sales and marketing associate at The Advisory Board Company.

Favorite class/professor and why: Corporate governance with Professor Steven Schmeiser. He presented us with case studies and challenged us to analyze and defend the varying perspectives of different stakeholders. This frequently required defending a position that was at odds with your personal opinion. I learned a lot about myself by challenging my personal rationales, biases and analyses.

Talents and/or passions discovered at MHC: Traveling. When you attend a small college with many different countries, cultures and perspectives represented, you cannot help but want to learn more about the world.

What do you value most about your liberal arts education?: The intellectual agility that comes with a liberal arts education is truly uncontested. Due to the diversity in courses and perspectives I was exposed to, I am able to cultivate connections with people across differences. Liberal arts also ignites the kind of intellectual curiosity that makes you eager to learn more about a topic you know absolutely nothing about.

Why is a women’s education still relevant today?: The emphasis on a holistic education, where you are not there just to learn calculus and microeconomics but also to engage your whole self through the many personal development and leadership opportunities available to you.

What do you want the world to know about MHC?: Mount Holyoke provides you with all the resources to become the best version of yourself, but you are not ushered to that point. You get to that point by taking initiative, immersing yourself in discomfort and challenging yourself. Mount Holyoke is the catalyst that facilitates that developmental process.
