Big Life Wins:
Starting off as a junior all alone in Singapore at a desk with 0 market share, worked my socks off to help establish the firm and myself as a market leader in doing what we do in a smaller team with a smaller budget compared to competition seeing multiple promotions. Success has meant I can fund my own education.
Post MBA Goal:
Moving out of Singapore to a location in Europe or the middle east and start my own family and finally settle down after a childhood of moving location. Professionally I hope to leverage my MBA to transition into a new more growth-focused industry/startup.
