My name is Josefa Franca, I am a junior of the Organization Governance and Management program. I have an associates degree in Social Work, for this reason I believed OGM would consolidate my employee profile. The OGM program has helped me develop my skills on various fields. Most importantly it has changed my mindset to an analytic and solution-oriented person. In life one faces various obstacles, these skills are beneficial to be proactive and dynamic when facing these challenges.
