Reflecting back now, every moment seems to be so precious and unique which will be remembered forever.
We had the opportunity to visit the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)’s warehouse in Dubai. The visit was organised by SP Jain School of Global Management to expose us to professional management and operation skills. At the warehouse, we met Ms Destamena Vinodh, Supply Associate at UNHCR Dubai, who helped us understand the operations of the UNHCR. It was a wonderful and fulfilling learning experience for us.
This summer, I got an absolutely wonderful and unexpected opportunity to work as a Software Engineer at VPBank, one of Vietnam’s earliest established Joint-Stock Commercial banks. Why do I say ‘unexpected’? Because to be honest, a year ago, I wouldn’t have believed that I would get this highly coveted role in the banking industry right in my Year 1 of the Bachelor of Data Science (BDS) program or that I would be writing this blog to share my experience!
