Beauty: an unexpected journey

BY ELEFTHERIA SITARA
@ VOL 25 ON JAN 16, 2015

Eleftheria Sitara from Greece gave a very personal story of her journey into the MBA programme at MSM and how studying with fellow students from 22 different nationalities has brought a new meaning to the word “beauty” for her.

"My idea was to present a topic regarding ‘beauty’ and the unexpected ways in which I discovered it through my experiences. The reason I selected it was because I wanted to present not only a brief description of my personal attitude towards life, but also because I wanted to express publicly my gratitude for all the precious moments I am currently sharing with my international classmates."
