Speaker 1: 00:06
I try to push myself outside of my comfort zone as much as possible here at Booth.
Speaker 2: 00:10
I think that's why I came to business school, to be challenged.
Speaker 3: 00:13
This year I led the tech trek which is a group of 60 students going to Seattle and the Bay area. That was really something that I've never done before, and that was that was a great experience.
Speaker 4: 00:24
I signed up for the LEAD practicum where we had to give impromptu speeches every week and then video record ourselves and watch them and analyze our videos.
Speaker 5: 00:35
I don't really like presenting in front of people. It's not my forte but, um, through GBC and also other groups, I've gotten the chance to really push myself on that front.
Speaker 6: 00:45
Definitely like being on camera right now is probably one of the things that pushed me out. I've never been, and these this has been a fantastic experience.
Speaker 1: 00:52
I acted and wrote and directed in our Follies comedy shows.
Speaker 2: 00:56
I've taken courses in decision modeling and data science that have pushed me to code in languages that I did not know before.
Speaker 7: 001:05
I will say I'm also not the best at entering new social situations where I don't know anyone yet. So for me that was a really great opportunity to meet new people who are now, I think lifelong friends and that's an amazing part of business school. You get to go outside your comfort zone and really develop relationships that are meaningful.
