Dr Siva Kumari speaks to Thrive Global about what she’s learned as IB Director General

Dr Siva Kumari, Director General of the IB, was recently featured in Thrive Global - the newest venture from Huffington Post founder Ariana Huffington - where she shared how she became passionate about education and what drives her in her job. She also talks about the five things she wishes someone had told her before becoming Director General of the IB.
