I was brought into this world on the 31st of December 1990 into a family of a geography teacher (my mother) and an engineer (my father) who at a later point (when I was 12) unofficially separated, due to my father's habitual drinking. Since then I've been raised by the most selfless and loving woman I could've hoped to call mom.
As a student, I've exhibited potential (which I've since felt has been largely unfulfilled), evidenced by my primary and high school diplomas (6.00 and 5.95 respectively on a 6-grade scale) and my various accomplishments mostly in the fields of mathematics and geography, including two 3rd place prizes in nation-wide mathematics and geography competitions (ages 10 and 14 respectively). During my high school days I was an avid gamer and as much as I like to brag among fellow-minded gamers that I made the national team in one of the most competitive online games (Dota), I hardly believe that translates any value over to the career path I'm aiming for.
My decision to come to Denmark was far from an easy one to make. As time came for me to start picking universities and programmes to apply for, I felt that a next-level education was far from the next step I desired. Being raised in a family of modest means, I wanted more and I wanted a shortcut and an education presented neither at the time. Thus, I became invloved in a multi-level marketing company (a business based on accumulated purchases and re-purchases by referrals) which I gave up on after 6 months for two reasons - I wasn't particularly good at it and it put tremendous strain on my relationship with my mother. In January 2011 I arrived in Denmark and started my higher education in the Zealand Institute of Business and Technology in Roskilde (Roskilde Handelsskole at the time) in international marketing and sales, which I picked because I honestly wanted to become really good at the one thing I had passion for but had failed at up to that point. Since then I've had numerous experiences at sales on various levels - doing promotional campaigns, doing physical sales (as an AIESECer), doing sales on corporate levels for several startups, including my own and working odd jobs (f.x. bartending).
After finishing my AP degree, I took a semester off, figuring out how I wanted to continue with my studies and I set my mind on Innovation & Entrepreneurship, mostly because I've always had a passion for developing things (on a later stage things became ventures and products) and because I wanted to be in a setting where I'd find likeminded people, which I did, evidenced by my decision to start a company with several of my close classmates. Ever since finishing my studies in February 2015, I've been on the job market, albeit unsuccessfully.
All in all, the past almost 5 years have been an incredible ride and have taught me an overwhelming amount about myself and about how the world works, which is why I like saying that Copenhagen raised me. These past 5 years have also humbled me as I've overcome the numerous challenges that have come my way and given me poise to excel at everything I do. I'm currently undertaking danish classes, a course in web design and Google analytics as I'm aiming to improve my prospects on the job market as well as make myself more competitive on the start-up scene with regards to my future ventures. I can confidently say that you'll be making a great ROI, should you choose to express interest in me as your potential employee.
I'm a 24-year-old recent graduate in Innovation & Entrepreneurship with various working experiences and fields of expertise and I'm looking to "settle down" and start a long-term relationship with a new job
