Dallas Charles

Full-time MBA ‘25 
Class Year:

Hometown: Washington, D.C.  

What's something on your bucket list? 

I want to continue my travels and see as much of this world as possible. I enjoy experiencing different cultures and people. 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Peru. I visited several cities, each one exquisitely beautiful with diverse cultures and amazing food!

Favorite family tradition: 

Since elementary school, my mom and I would reserve a day (usually Christmas Eve) to have breakfast at IHOP, followed by a day of Christmas shopping for family and friends. My mom would even try to shop for me and hide gifts in the trunk. I always looked forward to this day with such anticipation. What started as a one-time last-minute chore has become a most cherished mother-daughter tradition that continues to this day! 

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

I don't want to pinpoint a single accomplishment, because I'm proud of everything that I have done. Without every accomplishment, big or small, I wouldn't be where or who I am today. 

What did you want to be when you were small?  

When I was younger, I wanted to be an architect. I was even gifted a subscription to “Architectural Digest” and sketchbooks by family and friends.  

My latest book recommendation: 

“Americanah” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche 

My life story in exactly one sentence:  

Just a DC girl working her way to the C-suite! 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

The Real Milk and Honey 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

My grandma used to make a rum cake that was absolutely amazing! Since her passing, my uncle has taken over the task, and I’m sure she’s proud. He was definitely paying attention when she made it.
