Class of 2022
Clara Ohakim joins the GHD program after working on finance projects at KPMG and Shell. Subsequently, she started her own business and through this venture, she experienced the challenges of accessing credit as a female entrepreneur. This led her to work on public-private partnership finance projects that gave Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises access to sustainable credit to expand their business operations. Her interest in international development stems from a desire to develop strategies that implement informed and data-driven solutions to sustainable finance, equality, and financial inclusion in developing countries. At Georgetown, she hopes to pursue a certification in International Business Diplomacy, an interdisciplinary course of study, that will complement her interest in sustainable finance. Clara holds a B.A. in Business Economics and Financial Management from the University of Hull, UK. She is conversational in French and hopes to become expertly fluent by the end of the GHD program.
