One of the first answers that used to pop to my mind when asked this question would have been : get an MBA.
While I have an engineering background, my best strengths have never been very “technical”. I enjoy human interactions, building teams, getting the best out of people and planning exciting projects. And I want a degree that proves I have the right skills to perform these tasks well.
A year ago, I realized that money was just a bad excuse for not making it happen.
I will turn 30 next year, and I believe it is the perfect time for me to go back to B School — the odds are still in my favor if I refer to the typical US class profiles.
There were many times I wanted to give up on the application process, and there will be many more. Among other things, my relatives tell me that I am crazy to jeopardize everything I already have. This is the reason why I chose to start this blog : to remind myself that I can do it, and hopefully encourage other ladies out there to pursue their dreams too.
