“It’s always with the end that things begin” is one of my favorite phrases and the best one to describe the end of this beautiful period in my life. It was in October 2020 that it all began. I started meeting new people, discovering extraordinary minds, and living in survival mode because of covid. Online courses, team presentations, masks, hybrid formats, curfew, marketing, lockdowns, exams, internships, teamwork, discussions, friendships, a lot of information, and lots of lessons learned. This MBA gave me more than anything I could have ever asked for, so I celebrate that! ”
