Any celebrity worth their salt supports a cause that has something to do with Africa. When they talk about Africa, the media agencies portray a picture of rampant poverty, malnutrition and a post-apartheid set up. This is the stark contrast of what we experienced in Morocco. Coming from a developing country myself, where people, NGOs and the governmental agencies are working hard to alleviate such third world problems, I was keen and excited about the trip and I was mentally comparing India and Morocco at every visit during our field trip to Morocco, as part of the ESSEC Global MBA.

I came for this MBA with few clear objectives in mind: -
- Learn from the best-in-class faculty of an international business school.
- Learn from the professional experiences of a hugely diverse class.
- Take a break from the monotony of my extremely hectic job.
- Travel outside my country for the first time and push my limits by putting myself out of my comfort zone.
The objective was simple. To become more self-dependent, explore differences in cultures and personalities, and grow as a person.
And last but not the least, gain life experiences by traveling through the historically rich countries of Europe.
