It's very important to understand what is your role as an individual in the bigger system of things.
The EMFIN helped me to connect the dots.

I have become more people-oriented.
INSEAD was the only school I applied to because of its diversity, its global outlook, and its focus on women in business.
It’s only by setting an example that we’ll change things for the next generation of women.
At INSEAD, the classroom dynamic and the level of teaching were my biggest joy!
The GEMBA was my first choice
The picture you see above is of my son and me. Aren't we adorable together ? Last week we had an official welcome reception by INSEAD Dean Ilian Mihov. All this is indeed real. The Dean said a few words that have stuck with me: "INSEAD is your present and YOU ARE THE FUTURE. The year ahead will be the BEST year of your life." Inspired and empowered, I sit at my study desk reflecting on how I made it to INSEAD. Thinking about things that made it possible for me to call myself “I AM IN-SEAD”.
When I visited INSEAD for the first time almost four years ago, I was pregnant with my daughter, Jeanne. Augustin, my son, lived the MBA Application from inside since I was pregnant with him during the GMAT, the application essays and my first alumni interview. He was born the day before my second interview (which was rescheduled with an excuse they'd never heard before!). My kids’ lives have been entangled with INSEAD from the start.
