“Let your courses and professors spark your inspiration. One of my favourite classes was “Sociology of Aids” – which introduced me to Malcolm Gladwell and the concept of tipping point, which inspired me to explore that concept against the backdrop of consumer products (and marketing) and climate change. School is the match, you make the fire.”
