"I am passionate about nature. Nature teaches us in very subtle ways. I respect its enormous wisdom - hidden in an old tree or in a small, complex insect. For those who know how to appreciate it, nature offers the highest level of perfection. My personal commitment is to give to the planet more than I take away from it, and every step I take is in this direction," shares Smith MBA student Carolina Quesada Fonseca on the MBA blog.
