Congratulations #classof2021 on all of your achievements during such a challenging year. Every year, we ask BCG leaders to share their advice, stories, and wisdom with the graduating class of students around the world. Senior Partner & Managing Director and Chief Marketing Office, Sharon Marcil shares her advice: "try a lot of different things. Don’t avoid exploring areas that you may not be the best at, because there is still tremendous value in what you can learn from them. And don’t shy away from what pulls you out of your comfort zone. The unexplored and undiscovered may just contain the greatest source of energy for you. Congratulations and wishing you all the best in your careers and lives!"
