Watch Poets&Quants MBA | Ms Climbing Construction Manager

About me:

I am a woman of color in construction management (4 years). I attach great importance to building communities and working as a team towards a common goal. My low undergraduate GPA was due to me getting involved in a competition project team, putting in 40 hours/week on it because I loved it and my team depended on me as the head of manufacturing and later team leader.
