Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    Get your MBA; it is something you can use anywhere.

  • How I responded:

    While I was interested in business; I knew I wanted more from my business background. I wanted to learn more about the people, organizations, and how they work together. I decided to explore more about a masters in organization development. I talked to a lot of professionals in various industries who have this background and realized this is exactly the degree I wanted to pursue.
