During my time at AGSM, I really learned how to think with agility. During my first year, I was in transition personally and professionally. Through the help of my cohort and the wonderful faculty at AGSM, I was able to rediscover myself, build upon current skills, and apply my academic lessons and personal vision in a way that opened doors for me that I would have overlooked without this unique experience.
