My name is Ranbir Gill, and I am from Sacramento, California. However, I was born and raised for a part of my childhood in Punjab, India. I moved to Pittsburgh to attend the University of Pittsburgh and graduated in Spring of 2016. I majored in Political Science and minored in History. I have been fortunate to gain experience and exposure to the Non-Profit sector throughout college and post-college. I interned with The Pittsburgh Foundation for almost a year within the organization’s Development and Communication department. I also interned at Cold Spark Media, a political consulting non-profit, during my Senior year of College. Prior to starting the program, I was an Advancement Assistant at the Carnegie Museum of Art. My role consisted of a variety of responsibilities, from donor interactions to data management. I applied to the MBA-SBP program to further my career and education, so that I can grow as a leader and develop better management skills to bring to a work place. I want to build important connections with my professors and peers during this program, and I want to continue to increase my confidence as a leader. I hope to be able to obtain a job after this program that will lead me to better my local community and provide me with the opportunities necessary to grow within my career.
