I am passionate Having spent my early years doing research on the sustainable management of environmental resources, I came to the conclusion that change should be based on the individual initiative and should be aided by the private and public sector. Therefore I expanded my skills with a degree in business and I'm currently interested in developing projects that focus on social entrepreneurship. I would describe myself as passionate, easygoing individual with extensive analytical and strategical skills, tech savvy and team player that is looking to make some difference on the degree I can in the world. Because change is achieved one step at the time.
