How would you describe your BSL experience so far?
Though I am still in my first term at BSL, I have really enjoyed how qualified my professors are and what exceptional level of knowledge they have. Furthermore, it is extremely gratifying to study in such a diverse environment and learn about other people’s culture and their way of doing business.
What makes studying at BSL different?
As I have studied in a much larger university before, I can already tell that there is a lot more community engagement at BSL. Since the class size is smaller, there is a more personalized connection between professors and students, and this makes the learning experience a lot more vibrant.
How do you see your professional future in 5 years from now?
In 5 years, I see myself working in a multinational company either in the marketing or finance department while preparing to do an MBA in one of the Ivy League universities.
If there is one significant change you could accomplish in the world, what would it be?
As a supporter of gender equality, I would like to move the world towards one that is more equal in terms of what females can accomplish. I would also like to dedicate my resources to supporting the upbringing of children that aren’t as fortunate as others in more developed countries.
What are the most important values today’s leaders should have?
Open mindedness, self-respect, integrity, ethical behavior, courageous leadership, and intercultural communication skills.
Why would you recommend BSL to your friends and peers?
The great thing about BSL being a small school is that it empowers its students to take the initiative to bring about change, in this case, through the BSL student council. When a person understands their capacity to have an impact and change their environment, that capacity is replicated on a much larger scale.
If you want to develop leaders that are ready to go out into the world and bring about the change they desire, you need to make them realize that they have the ability to accomplish that in the first place.
