I could now examine every situation clearly and keeping in mind the consequences that would affect me. I now compare before making any decision the cost and the advantages I would have to bear and then decide wisely
Ipolicy helped me in learning how one real life problem could be approached in innumerable ways. It helped me in creating an empathetic and informed ideology regarding people, and society in general.
Ipolicy actually urged me to think over concepts in a broader and defined way. It put forward what the real concept conventionally says and how we think and feel about it. It challenged us to raise some questions about the similar political issues.
What I think is that people should explore themselves and indulge themselves into new experiences. Ipolicy has been a new experience for me. I have not only learned to think beyond the level but also got an opportunity to explore my ideas
The ipolicy has stimulated my thought process and has engaged my interest in public policy and understanding how an economy works
Ipolicy really satisfied my aim to attend this workshop which was to become a better person and be the change that I want to see in this world and with that have an idea of that change.
The program directed my attention towards developing opinions and issues that weren't considered that important to me and has also helped me create a more critical viewpoint regarding public administration.
Ipolicy totally changed my perspective. I came to understand the problems which I earlier never could think of.
