    Hello Ms. Aussie Consultant! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. Former Londoner too! Farringdon Station was my old stomping ground. Please have a Welsh Rarebit for me at St. John on St. John Street.

Add female engineering major to the picture and there’s even more to be excited about! The thing I want to think about though is what’s the “why” behind your goals?
