why do you do what you do?
Technology is progressing very fast whether we like it or not. I have 2 missions in my life: The first one is to show the world that technology can be mind-blowing and that we can create a positive impact through it, no matter who we are and in what industry we are. The second one is to prove that women can be great tech entrepreneurs and inspire more and more females to build business and gain confidence.
what's one thing you hope never changes?
The passion that I have towards what I do and the people with whom I do it.
when do you feel most alive?
When I travel and experience the most amazing, weird and exceptional moments ever. Also, when I get to drive my teams, family and friends to perform at their best.
what are you really good at, but kind of embarrassed that you're so good at it?
Filling applications. I've learnt SO much from doing this in my life. There was a time when I did as many as I could and ended up knowing how to really explain what I wanted to share in a concise and meaningful way. At the begging I felt it was the most embarrassing talent ever but… it got me pretty far.
what's the hardest lesson you've had to learn?
That I can't have it all, all the time. My entrepreneurial nature pushes me to just want to do everything so I usually end up overloading myself with work and responsibilities. I learnt the hard way that sometime I must say no, or at least no for now 😉
what's the title of the current chapter of your life?
Exponential growth while enjoying the ride!
