Teamwork

I’ve led and been on many teams both in school and work. Together, we have created many success stories.

Public Speaking

I love being on stage; teaching, presenting, hosting feel very natural to me. I’ve been front of an audience since age 7.

Media Creation

I’m really good at Adobe software suite but there are still many to learn. I’m an amateur photographer, videographer and a designer.

Research

Research is a habit for me, I feel the urge to look anything up if I don’t know it, I go deep down on studies and try to figure out from the base. That also really helps me to reason.

I’ve started high school at Doga, there we had TV and photography studios and I got a chance to learn professional photography and filmography. I’m still developing myself in those areas. Doga Schools also had a project called t-MBA (MBA for teenagers). We were expected to organize events, do business agreements, find sponsors etc. t-MBA also included subprogram called t-Mentor, I was elected as a t-Mentor, my duties were to teach my colleagues about technology in education, creating and implementing different ways to enhance classroom experience with tablets and smartboards. I also presented Doga Schools at BETT Show, London in 2013 and we won “Most Innovative School Award”.

After a year at Doga I’m transferred to Okyanus High Schools. Since I had the experiences on presentation, teamwork and managing projects. I was quickly noticed by my teachers to do projects with. I’ve quickly took role on ongoing projects and enabled our school to join more organizations finally to make our own. My first science project at Okyanus, were about converting waste chicken feathers to fuel. I’ve learned about importance of research and science ethics. I’ve won many national and international prizes with the projects I made. In addition, I’ve shot short films, presented many school events, did plays, organized and led an international student competition, debated, joined MUN conferences and pioneered the first student council and student magazine. I can proudly say that I had my finger on almost every school activity that is available. I gained so many skills that I still benefit to this day.
