    Lee - Season 5



    Occupation: Business Analyst
    Hometown: Brooklyn, NY.

    Lee, 22, graduated from Cornell University with a 4.0 GPA, where he received a B.S. in Policy Analysis and Management. While attending Cornell University, he won business plan writing and marketing competitions, and served as a teaching assistant for courses in Entrepreneurship and Management. He worked for Merrill Lynch, researching emerging markets, creating portfolios and compiling business plans for high net worth clients, including an investment banking deal with an estimated value in excess of $100 million. Previous experiences outside of corporate America include, working at a day treatment program for the mentally ill, volunteering at soup kitchens and teaching fourth grade children in an inner-city school. Lee draws his inspiration from his grandfather who emigrated to the U.S. penniless and uneducated, yet through hard work and determination was successful through investing in real estate. At age 22, Lee became an analyst for one of the largest business/consulting firms in the world. Today, Lee works with some of the biggest companies and government agencies in the country to devise business strategy and information technology systems. Lee currently resides in New York City.

    Q&A:

    What was your very first job?
    Like every natural entrepreneur I started young, shoveling snow at the age of 12.

    Who convinced you to try out for The Apprentice and why?
    My parents convinced me to try out for the show because they are confident that I will win.

    What did you quit/leave/sacrifice to join The Apprentice?
    I took a leave of absence from my job as an analyst, for one of the biggest business-consulting firms in the world.

    Why do you want to work for Mr. Trump?
    Mr. Trump is the consummate businessman. I naturally want to learn from him so that I can further develop my own business skills. Working for Mr. Trump would be the opportunity of a lifetime to learn from the best.

    What have you learned from watching previous seasons of The Apprentice?
    If you want something strongly enough, you must persevere. With hard work and determination you will prevail.

    What's your definition of success?
    Success means achieving your goals and being proud of your accomplishments, in particular achievements that help others. In the end, if you are happy with what you're doing then you are truly successful.

    How would you describe your leadership style?
    I am a take-charge person who is hands on and gets down and dirty. I don't like to follow but I do take input from those around me. I feel it is important to promote team spirit, however, I strive to control my own destiny.

    How do you deal with challenges within a group dynamic?
    I use a very direct approach, where I address the issues at hand and try to understand the perspectives of all parties while making my own opinion known. All the while mutual respect is important and should be promoted wherever possible.

    How do you balance creativity and business?
    They go hand in hand. You can't truly be successful in business without using your creative spirit.

    What is your philosophy on business?
    Business should be a means to further personal as well as corporate and community goals/priorities.

    Your favorite (famous) quote?
    "The champ is here" (Muhammad Ali)

    Why should you be the next Apprentice?
    I have what it takes - energy, determination, intelligence, creativity, integrity, and heart.

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    Guy has cojones. I hope he's rewarded for standing up to that twit Tarek instead of punished for it. But this show sometimes punishes those who think for themselves.
