Carissa Zou (Class of 2020) is from Palo Alto, California and plans to concentrate in Finance and Operations, Informations, and Decisions.

She is also looking forward to starting the new Financial Literacy Tutoring Project in hopes of spreading financial literacy resources to a broader scope of local Philadelphia schools. Aside from Wharton Women, she is also a tour guide for the Kite and Key Society, a project leader for MUSE Social Impact Consulting, and works at the Student Federal Credit Union.
