From hour days on campus, juggling between lectures, readings, quizzes, assignments and assessments, barely even finding the time to eat yet alone sleep, the MBA started with a bang that left one feeling completely helpless.

Reflections on the Doctoral Journey - New Professionals and Graduate Students Post
Today, I find myself not only looking back on these last 12 months with fondness and pride, but realising that they have become a part of my life journey that truly defined who I am, who I have become, and still have the ability to become.

It made me realise that any goal no matter how big or small is not only doable, but achievable if taken on with the right mindset, heart, attitude and the ability to be strategic about the choices one makes.
Having a clear vision for wanting to do an MBA — which was to discover the true Poonam and elevate my mindset to a new level as well as wanting to build relationships — meant that I charged head on into the adventure with a clear purpose and drive.

Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determine what you want to be. Before I ask you to accept my pain, I have to accept the pain myself. Before I ask you to love me, I have to be madly in love with myself.
