Who Are You in One Sentence? How Do You Want to Be Known and Remembered?

I am ever grateful for what I have and give my best to excel in everything I undertake. If I have given my best, the result doesn’t matter. I’d like to be remembered as someone who has inspired everyone around him to be a better version of themselves and lead a meaningful life.

What Do You Care Deeply About? What Do You Stand For?  Something is calling you. 

I stand for taking action and accepting its consequences. I value experiences and new learnings.

When Do You Feel MOST Lit Up? What are You Doing at That Time? Who Are You With?

I feel most lit up when I'm talking about and making strategies – marketing and military - as well as spending time with close friends and family.

Where Do You Want to be 12 Months From Now on Your Leader Path?   

In 5 years, I want to be strategizing Hilti’s Global marketing plan for the future. 12 months from now, I envision myself making sales and marketing strategies on a National level.

And Why? 

I am confident that I can embody my potential, and in turn, gain a very rich experience, share recognition, and enjoy a very fulfilling professional life.
