International motivational speaker Ms. Cathy O'Dowd interacted with IIT Bombay faculty, student, staff and alumni community on 15th March in its campus. She shared the challenges she and her team faced while climbing the Mt Everest, the failures they faced as a team and said how, by being mentally flexible, they were able to persevere to reach the summit. Ms Cathy and her team have helped developed a new route to climb Mt Everest.
"Take failure in your stride, learn from your mistakes and continue the path of achieving your dreams. Each of us has our own mountain of fear to climb, which we can with courage," she said.
The session was organised by the Counselling Care Centre, Women's Cell and Institute Cultural Council
