“MESPOM was not just a phase in my career, but rather has grown to be a significant part of me.”

In 2011, after working with a NGO in India applying System Dynamics Modeling for urban water and solid waste management related projects, I was certain I wanted to work in the environmental field. Having a Statistics bachelors degree (with Physics and Chemistry), I knew I needed a thorough grounding in all aspects of the field, and, thus MESPOM was an obvious choice. MESPOM helped me not only build on my natural science foundations, but also gain understanding and confidence in policy and management aspects.

One of the most beautiful aspects of experiencing MESPOM was the exercise in family-building it provided. Over time, through common experiences and the sheer physical proximity you have with one another, the people you encounter first as unknowns from various corners of the world, become lifelong friends, inextricably linked to your personal growth, your memories, your future and your past. I could not have imagined the importance my MESPOM relationships would carry years after graduation. And yet, after years apart, I can think of no group of people with whom I share this kind of bond.
