When I was asked what SWISSAM means to me, I would answer "home, friends and mentors"! My story started in SWISSAM when I was 17 years old. I've become the 2nd year student there in 2013. My first job offer was signed with the @nevsky.forum hotel in Saint-Petersburg. At the same time, I was passing the school graduation exams and getting the secondary school certificate. Later on, I have been launching and managing various events, my own bakery, and a fashion house. In 2018 I started my own event agency called YES I DO!
I want to thank my parents for taking me to the SWISSAM planet! I also want to say thank you to the SWISSAM team and mentors, who have been motivating, teaching, inspiring and supporting me throughout this journey!
