    "In an increasingly VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, the ability to view issues from multiple perspectives is not just helpful, but critical. My four years in SOSS helped cultivate in me a love for multi-disciplinary learning, respectful debate and discussion, and creative thinking. This has had a direct and positive impact on my work as today I’m able to analyze issues at work critically, take nuanced decisions, communicate articulately and confidently, and influence stakeholders effectively. These skills that SOSS education instill are absolutely essential for the ever-evolving job landscape, and will help in my career growth."
