Hi everyone! My name is DeAndré White. I am a first-year MBA student at UNC Kenan-Flagler hailing from Suffolk, Virginia (some of the locals like to call it the peanut capital of the world.)
I attended Duke University (that’s right), about ten miles up the street, where I majored in Sociology and received a certificate in Markets and Management. I also had the great opportunity play football (that’s right) where I earned the distinction of being the youngest person to start a game in the ACC my freshman year. After graduating in 2006 I worked at American Express for three years as an analyst managing outsourced partner relationships. When the excitement of that position was too much to bear, I moved to Philadelphia and created a venture aimed at providing concierge services to prison inmates.
I am a huge Baltimore Ravens fan and during the fall I spend the majority of my Saturdays and Sundays switching between football games. I am the Tillman legacy representative and I will be focusing in entrepreneurship and marketing. Feel free to stop by whenever you want. I promise you will enjoy it.
