Today was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. As part of our personal transformation module we are assessed based on peer feedback. The idea was to tell your life story in a way that has an lasting impression or emotional impact.

Within the time constraint of 15 minutes, and a storyboard by our sides, we had to present what we believed made us a creative leader. We did so by going into depth about our lives and our backgrounds. It was enjoyable for some and a harrowing experience for others. Understandably, some tears were shed.

This is how the BA Business Entrepreneurship degree works. It takes you out of your comfort zone and puts you into uncomfortable situations. I’d argue that this brings about masses of value. You don’t think you’re learning (which can be quite frustrating). However, this learning by doing style is highly rewarding. From what I saw today it seems as though slowly and compounded over time, individuals will become more resilient, outspoken and ultimately confident.
