What advice do you have for Harvard HES students, now that you have graduated?
The best advice I have for Harvard HES students to have perseverance. Never give up even though since are not going as planned. The work could be sometimes overwhelming and hard at times, but always remember to keep focus by finding courses that interest you even if they are not directly related to your field of study, find professor’s reviews before taking a course, connect with other peers and be persistent. Having a degree from Harvard is one of the most rewarding experience that you will achieve in your life. Never give up!

Harvard Extension degree has a great impact of my career as people have another perspective of me. No matter where I go, I feel that having my ALM degree at Harvard has already made me become a better professional.
