Big Life Wins:

My major win in work so far has been to join the government in-house consulting firm I am currently working at. I remember that upon graduation I was dreaming about joining this institution, but had no clue about how to do it because of the extremely selective recruitment process and the scarce opportunities in the financial advisory department. After some experience at a Big 4 firm, I met with, and impressed the HR Manager at a business event and convinced him to add me to the recruitment pool. From that point on, I was able to land my dream a couple of months later.

Post MBA Goal:

Ideally, after the MBA I would like to join consulting firms with a focus on international development such as Dalberg. Alternatively, I world consider jobs in strategy consulting both in Africa and North America.
