About me
I define myself as a curious person: maybe this is one reason why I enjoy being in the Marketing & Advertising industry. As a Gen Z representative, I also take a great interest in sustainability, especially when it comes to fashion as this is the other field I am passionate about. ⬇️ So here are 5 facts about me: ◾️ I love the lecture from Simon Sinek - "Start with Why": if you want to succeed in something, the first thing you have to do is start with a why; ◾️ Behaviour psychology is something my bachelor thesis was based on: why people do A and how it triggers B is definitely a topic I like exploring. And again it goes down to the why; ◾️ Learning languages is another thing I enjoy: proficiency in English, B1 in Italian, and a basic level of Russian. aiming for learning South Korean one day; ◾️ Expressing my creativity is something that charges me: dancing, singing, making scrapbooks, or something new I have never tried ◾️ And I like to think of myself as a sustainable fashion advocate too, especially when it comes up to this Tik Tok handle @stylingconsciously
