“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently” - Maya Angelou.

I want to be a leader and to be followed for being ethical, kind, and reflective. For changing the set parameters in the benefit of the whole society. For trusting and respecting the people within my organization, and for encouraging them to develop themselves to their fullest potential.

I want to be able to create a system that allows a real work/life balance experience and a pleasant atmosphere for all the members of my organization. I want people in my sphere of influence to be identified with a bigger purpose and to be willing to fight for it. I’m conscious of the greatness of this challenge, but also about the courage that I need to become the leader that I want to be.

I am a sweet person. I look like a kid and could appear to be very naïve. I am in love with love and would easily spend hours hearing about a good love story. I am polite and considered. And I might often look insecure because I’m quite slow making decisions. But even if this would not be the most favorable description that I could give about myself, as E.E. Cummings said ones “it takes courage to show up and become who you really are”.
