Get to Know Peter

"I was born in China and raised in Singapore before moving to Canada for high school and undergrad. I have around nine years of experience working in banking and finance. My interests include basketball, boxing, backpack traveling, trying out new restaurants and wine pairings, and learning how to code.

"I chose the Tepper School because I wanted to be in a school with a small class size and cohort because I aimed to build long-term relationships with like-minded people. The small class size allows students to get to know each other on a deeper level and foster a culture of collaboration.

"I find Pittsburgh to be a delight. Although the city has been growing in recent years, it maintained its history and charm. Pittsburgh also has a growing food scene, and I am always surprised at the surprising number of decent Asian restaurants here. There is also whitewater rafting at Ohiopyle or snowboarding at Seven Springs for those seeking an adventure!"
