success means contribution

my personal story

Since my childhood, I have been passionate about learning and creating new things which add more  value.

Feeling the thrill of discovering hidden potentials which could be transformed into valuable outcomes, uncovering the intrinsic value of the world around myself and creating the win-win situations for all parties involved have always been the three critical factors which guided me through my both personal and professional life.

As a person who believes that there is always a space to be more, do more, and give more, I have been active in various environments and setups, doing different roles and having various responsibilities.

On the one side, I had a pleasure to act as a manager in the highly prestigious financial institution, work as a strategy consultant on behalf of the international consulting company, control the flow of investment funds in one of the biggest asset management firm and also both build my own and support others in creating new ventures.

On the other side, I have been a devoted volunteer making children’s’ dreams come true, a supporting mentor helping start-ups win and a public speaker and lecturer, always welcoming the chance to share the knowledge and inspire others to contribute.

think in terms of contribution

Make a Wish

“Make a wish and we will make it come true”. Sounds trivial but it gives an infinite power. When a child realises that  the dream comes true, she has an enormous power to fight against any kind of illness.
