Thinking back, what is your most memorable experience?

One of my most memorable experiences was during a national volleyball tournament where my school team asked me to play in a higher category. All the players were at AAA caliber. I was able to neutralize all the attacks of the strongest attacker despite my young age. Winning this final match for my teammates who were seniors was a great moment of my sporting life.  


What made you decide to consider enrolling within the Telfer Executive MBA program?

I chose Telfer Executive MBA because I had an excellent previous experience with a development program at the University of Ottawa (CIO Institute of Professional Development). The teachers and coaches were so enthusiastic and experienced that I had an immense desire to continue in my endeavors in this prestigious institution.


What do you admire in a leader or mentor? Do you have someone who you consider a strong leader or mentor within your life?

I admire serenity and wisdom in a mentor. I also admire approachability, availability and the ability to listen. Foremost, they must have a good communication and a collaborative mindset, so that I may open up and fully embrace the coaching experience. I have the opportunity of knowing a few mentors from past employments. One of my best supporters is my fiancé, who knows my strengths and provides me with continuous feedback on my weaknesses.
