“Maria, I think you’re on Mute!”

Although It’s been just seven weeks into the MBA, it feels longer; it feels more like halfway into the program. A lot’s happened. (in a good way!) We started without a lockdown, and now there is a lockdown. Thankfully, educational purposes are sort of exempt so we still get in person classes. My week typically […]
