Hard work gets the job done. It's very important to be creative if you want to be successful and that’s one of the things that my teachers at MCBS helped me understand.

What career path did you choose after graduating from MCBS and why?

I was willing to take any job for the sake of experience. Starting from the bottom and building my way up the ladder. I had three jobs since I graduated and three privet business ventures. I left my first job after 6 months for a better offer. Then left my second job after one year because I felt I was wasting my time and effort on a job that didn't add anything to me. And I will be completing 6 year in my current job. As for the private business, I failed in my first two attempts and my third attempt is picking up.
