Discovered that the hard skills learnt at college are the most sought-after at my workplace now. Thanks to my mentors, I transformed from an individual who spoke and wrote a great deal, to a prospective leader who communicates powerfully with fewer words. Professors inculcated in me the value of being precise and concise .
