What are the three most important things that have personally shaped you?

CEMS 2005, LSE/ ESADE

1 Education: Not just academic education but all learning can develop you so much.
2 Friends/family: They ground you but also support you to follow your dreams.
3 Rejection: After being rejected, you become stronger and wiser. You learn, no matter what happens. Don’t fear it.

How did the CEMS network contribute to your professional achievements?

The network is amazing. It opened my eyes to so many cultures and experiences; it gave me so much confidence and I made so many friends. I still rely on the network today. From business advice to a simple introduction, the network makes the world a much friendlier place to be.

What advice would you give current CEMS students?

Be resilient, flexible and, above all, enjoy everything. Life works out fine in the end, so keep doing what makes you happy. Learn from every experience, good or bad. Find out what your passions are and never be afraid of taking risks: sometimes it is worth it!
