Auja Little is passionate about helping others unlock the power of building compelling and consistent narratives that communicate their unique and expansive potential. With a blend of supportive encouragement and direct, honest feedback, Auja ensures that her clients are well-equipped to push themselves further in order to deliver incredible applications.
During her own experience applying to business school, Auja recognized the importance of a powerful application story; it not only drove several admissions offers but multiple full-tuition scholarships. She is excited to take lessons from her own admissions experience and help her clients showcase their fit for their high preference MBA programs.
Auja has extensive experience coaching and mentoring professionals and students alike in organizations such as the Commercial Real Estate Women’s (CREW) Network, Upkey, and the Ernest Houston Johnson Scholars Program at Stanford University. Before attending the Stanford Graduate School of Business for her MBA, Auja attended The University of North Carolina where she got a BSBA in Finance, after which she worked in the commercial real estate industry. Her professional background spans corporate finance, strategy, operations, and asset management.
During her time at Stanford, Auja took on a leadership role in the Black Business Student Association, worked with GSB Admissions as a student ambassador, and built a new Stanford GSB course – Scaling a Small Business – alongside two faculty members. Today, she is working on her own startup, Beautyocracy, a shopping platform that makes it easier for women of color to find skincare products that work.
Auja lives in San Francisco and when she isn’t working, you’ll find her attempting recipes from the Great British Bake Off, searching for the best taco in the city, riding her Peloton, or planning her next big trip.
