    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. Congrats on the Engineering/Architecture dual degree – that does sound incredibly rigorous. And it clearly set you up for a progressive career so far in real estate project management. You’d ,mentioned you have 5 years of RE experience – in what capacity did you work prior to entering project management?

It’s not an excuse at all but …
