MIT MS/MBA Graduation! Dare to Dream!

✅Done and Done!✅ Two degrees in two years, I can’t believe it’s over!

Growing up in South Africa, my only exposure to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) was through books and film, attending was beyond a dream. Last Friday I graduated with an amazing cohort of classmates and friends! Extremely proud, I also know that I have been immensely lucky.


A few thoughts for those who would dare to dream (and those who have yet to):

  • Think! Believe! Dream! – Maybe it was the
    distance, both literal and metaphorical, but it took a long time and
    moving countries for me to believe MIT could happen for me.
  • I made it, you can too! – It may take some hard work and a lot of luck but you have to dream and try!
  • Not everybody makes it – That’s okay! You learn and grow so much from trying, it is truly worth it!
  • Follow your passion! – There are other paths and that is alright. You don’t have to go to MIT. You don’t have to go back to school. You do you!

Thank you to all those who were a part of this incredible journey. Special shout out to my real family and my new MIT Leaders for Global Operations (LGO) and MIT Sloan families.

It has been an honour and a privilege! #Graduated
