Where did you study and how did that help mould your career choices?
I studied all over! I moved around a lot growing up and I now love travelling… which is probably why I’m here in London. Before this, I did a CEMS Masters in Business Management which basically allowed me to take 3 semesters in 3 different countries. I was still not sure what I wanted to do and figured what better way to do that than to travel more with some added learning.
