What was the most valuable thing you got out of the Future Makers Fellowship?

I got a supporting community of like minded people

Why are you passionate about sustainability?

I have been interested in sustainability since I was really young. It started when I watched the Green Peace campaigns and I felt so inspired that people were taking care of the environment and were doing everything possible to stop climate change and environmental degradation. I think people can make more than money during their life, and that all of us can use our skills to create a more equalitarian and environmentally friendly society.

How did Future Makers play a role in directing your current path or project?

I learnt to focus on specific problems and find tangible solutions

Why is sustainability leadership important?

The world needs more sustainable leader in every industry and every organisation. Sustainable leaders will shape the future and will ensure that next generations have access to the same privileges we have had.

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

Progress my career as a sustainable leader by moving to a higher position and creating my own company.
