“I believe that young age is not an obstacle when pursuing big goals, as long as you are able to recognize your lack of knowledge and expertise, and commit to learn and grow on a daily basis. I am eager to become part of an international community of leaders who represent what I aim to be, and have the opportunity to be mentored personally by one.”
