“If you want something bad enough, it will happen. And it all happens through hard work and dedication. I don’t think I would have gotten in Insead if I didn’t pull out all the stops, if I didn’t study 30 hours a week for the GMAT, if I didn’t reach out to all these alumni, if I didn’t go visit the campus. I think if you’re really passionate about something it will be easy to do those things. It’s painful in the moment. But if you’re thinking about that goal it will motivate you to push through and make it happen.”
