The amount of essays that I have started with the phrase “The world is on the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution” is insane. Its my go to. From Information Systems (where it might actually be applicable) to Art History (where I shove in a theme into my photography essay that doesn’t really fit). I can’t believe that I can write it with absolute truth now because I am off to the 2018 World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings in Bali.
What have I signed up for? That’s what I have been asking myself since I found out that I was one of eight amazing AYLI delegates heading to the Annual Meetings of the World Bank & IMF in Washington D.C.!
Don't just be a goal setter, be a goal getter.
I wanted to spend time outside of my comfort zone, and apparently The World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings is where I'll be doing just that. I don't quite know what I'm in for or how to best prepare myself. What I do know is that my values and opinions are going to be challenged, and that I have to be at the airport by 5pm.
