One day, we were wrapping up our weekly deliverables when one of us had the idea of planning a "meet & greet" with Anshula Kant, World Bank MDCFO, followed by a one-on-one interview with her. We believed that this unique experience would allow us, young professionals embarking on our career paths, to meet with a senior leader in the World Bank and learn firsthand what it entails to work in finance at such a high level. With our supervisor in on the idea, we wasted no time contacting Anshula's front office. We were thrilled when word got back that Anshula was kind enough to spare an hour of her time.
Sixteen interns came from seven countries and five continents to embark on a career in finance through the World Bank Treasury's Summer Internship for college students. We know this program is highly competitive and the only one of its kind at the Bank. Although we are the fifth cohort, we are the first to meet with Anshula—an experience we will cherish long after our ten weeks in Washington, D.C. this summer. Armed with questions, we made the trip one day from the C Building to the MC to learn more about Anshula.
