Yesterday (7th Feb), I reached Malaysia after an eventful trip of USA and MIT for IAP. My personal biggest takeaway from the IAP has to be the interaction with people literally from all corners of the globe. By meeting them I realized that we all have more in common then our differences. By focusing on what we hold in common we can build lasting relationships and by doing the opposite we can continue to be secluded.

Thankfully, by focusing on the commonalities I managed to make friends which will continue to be part of my network in the days and years to come. The team tasks which were assigned to us facilitated the process of amalgamation and united us in a single class by the end of the program. I wish the duration of the program could somehow the extended to six weeks to further strengthen the bonds and see how teams to start performing once they are aware of their strengths and weaknesses.

Another thing which I would like to mention for incoming students is that if they plan their IAP trip smartly they can take the opportunity to explore USA as I did by traveling through 4 states in USA and all time zones I also completed my first ever round trip around the world and that too in less than 80 days.

Thanks & Regards,
