It’s hard to believe that just over a year ago I hopped on a plane and landed in London Heathrow Airport with my mom, a handful of suitcases, and no place to live yet. I couldn’t imagine how my life would change and the priceless journey I was about to embark on.
There was almost never a free moment to reflect as I was constantly busy with school work, clubs, recruiting, and friends. I lived in the moment and I don’t regret a single thing.
My biggest lesson was learning how to prioritise everything that the MBA had to offer.
There seemed to be an endless checklist of things I wanted to do, people I wanted to see, and places I wanted to visit. Luckily enough being in London, I was able to visit so many new places and have experiences I wouldn’t trade for the world.
Here’s a look back on my first year at LBS:
