Borrowed-A-Bike. Stole Our Hearts

Hello there! My name is Saad and I am from Pakistan! That’s right! Not many of us come all the way down here to Christchurch to get an education; I guess it’s a bit too cold for our taste. It’s a pity, since they are truly missing out on what this city has to offer. I am one of the few international students in the MBA program and I have to admit that it has been a blast thus far with both the studies and my project.
Time is rushing past me too darn quickly and I feel that I need to keep paddling to keep up! You must be wondering by now why this dorky dude is standing next to all of these bikes. Well, as part of the MBA program, I am required to work on a project which has to be based on a real life business problem and to that end, I am working with a business which is near the airport.

Consistently Hates Everyone

15 October 2014

BE CONSISTENT?
