"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
I have never attended design courses or schools, but I have always been fascinated by drawing, design and the process of bringing ideas to life, leveraging on both my creative side and rational side.
I believe that my engineering studies gave me a good methodology and a particular ability in understanding and facing new realities. The MBA I have recently attended strengthened my interest in business and made me develop a new way of seeing things. I had the opportunity to deal with diverse work cultures and meet entrepreneurs that inspired me from both a human and an entrepreneurial point of view.
My last work experience as a program manager showed me the importance of striving for common goals and teamwork and helped me to gain experience in keeping the focus on customers’ needs.
I’d describe myself as a determined, creative and positive person. I am outgoing and open-minded, for these reasons I feel comfortable at working either in teams or by myself. My picture wouldn’t be completed without mentioning two important personal characteristics: growth mindset and resilience. These two skills helped me to cope with several situations, gathering lessons learned, acting proactively and handling stress well.
