There’s a reason to be a bit sentimental now.
This is an assembly of some of the most brilliant individuals I’ve ever seen, and I feel humbled to be a part of. Sixteen months of training, coming in and out, asked with “What department is next?”, making peace with the things that I hated (accounting), and experiencing dynamics rarely ever thought.
This has been a very rewarding experience, unlike any other. To say that it is an important part in each of our lives will be a serious understatement. Not only those observing, even we ourselves see changes in our own way of life. Knowledge improving, skills attained, and some jobs were done.
I thank the company for believing in the strengths, and help in weaknesses, of all 9 of us. Sometimes we do ponder how each of us can we eliminate 500 other candidates, what was seen from us. Yet as you keep on believing, and pushed us forward, here we are, at an important milestone.
To our family, partners, friends, colleagues, an extended gratitude as well. We are not alone in walking through the path, but indeed, you all enabled us to remain here, and fight for all things worth the hard work.
Ultimately, I thank each and every member of this awesome group. The brilliance and bright mind of every person amazed me every single day. More than anything, they motivated me to be a better individual—be it deliberately or not. I couldn’t ask for a better MDP group than these wonderful personalities. I did see for myself, this has to be among the most solid, multi-talented, brightest groups of individuals that has ever existed.
Congratulations, Kyuuryu, we did it.
