Your "numbers" are good -- great GPA, great GMAT. However, you seem a bit young for a program where the average work experience is five years. So you'll need strong, well-defined goals and deep research into the school in order to convince them that you're ready for the ISB experience.
The other thing to be thinking about is how you stand out from others with similar backgrounds: the ISB essay question asks, in essence, "Why should we pick YOU?", and you'll need to be able to bring some experiences or biographical details to this essay that will differentiate you from the pack and add value.
I'm not doubting that you have these kinds of experiences, they just were not particularly visible in the profile evaluation you posted. So you might think more about that aspect of ISB's admissions process in order to be optimally competitive -- what I see here looks fine so far, we just need more.

Good luck!
