My favorite part of the trip was getting to bond with my classmates and getting to know a new city together. The class and the instructors were fantastic and I really wish the trip lasted longer.
The most rewarding element of this program was being able to meet new people and gain connections! I really enjoyed the alumni dinner. I was able to speak with multiple people about how they ended up in London and their career experiences. I also enjoyed traveling with my classmates! Being immersed in a new culture can be hard to do by yourself! So traveling with my classmates made it easier to explore and try new things. I'll never forget the memories that we made. I definitely consider them as good friends and I cannot wait for a reunion!
What I learned from this meeting is that networking is key in the career world. It became so evident during the trip that there is a strong importance on who you know and which way your interconnected web branches out.
