Overall: I joined IRMA in 2017 when I was naive and unsure about what I wanted to do in my life. In 2019, I got out of IRMA a young woman with a strong passion for bringing a positive change to our nation. Since then, I have been involved with a number of NGOs and social enterprises to help them improve their operations so that their benefits can reach a larger number of people. I owe it to IRMA for the fulfilling and rewarding life that I am living right now.
Overall: The two years at IRMA were the most productive of my entire life. The faculty and industry experts at IRMA can inspire any person to be the best versions of themselves. My peers also challenged me at every stage to improve myself. It felt like two years at IRMA crammed more knowledge and learning than 4 years of my graduation. I would like to thank IRMA for bringing out the best in me and helping me become better than I ever thought I could be.
