"One of the most impactful pieces of advice I’ve received so far in business school is that the MBA should be a transformational experience, not a transactional experience. What does that mean? I think it means taking risks and challenging myself to “say yes” to classes or experiences that I would typically shy away from. It means being open-minded and present within and outside the MBA community. These two years in school are meant to grant me a safe space to grow as a leader so that I can make a bigger impact!"
