Making the decision to come to Ross was one of the best I've ever made. My goals coming into business school were to try to push myself outside of my boundaries, meet new people, have new experiences, and basically figure out what I wanted to do with my life. From the start, Ross provided a great platform on which to achieve these goals. During the past 20 months, I've had the opportunity to meet so many great people both in and out of the classroom, be put in uncomfortable situations, interview with great companies, and take challenging classes across the entire business spectrum. While I'm not quite sure where I'm ending up after school, I know I have a great basic tool set to succeed wherever I decide to go.
My Ross experience has been a journey of the heart, mind, and soul. I've laughed, I've cried, but I've also never felt more accepted or felt like I've belonged more in a place than the two years I've spent in Ann Arbor. I've learned what it's like to be scared and insecure. And I've certainly made mistakes. But I come out of Ross more confident in myself and what I can achieve going forward. I think that I've experienced every kind of emotion during my time here- from excitement, fun, and joy to nervousness, fear, and regret. But nothing can describe the pride that I felt for myself and my classmates during our commencement ceremonies on April 27th. And the excitement for where we're headed and what the future holds for all of us! So that marks the end of my final blog post. Best wishes to all in the future!
For today, goodbye. For tomorrow, good luck. And forever, GO BLUE!!!
P.S.: My blog wouldn't be complete without some photos from the 2nd half of the year:
