Graduated from AUC in 2014 with a major in finance and a minor in economics and sociology. After graduation I worked in the field of accounting and auditing for a year. In January 2016 I founded Qubix and have been working there full time ever since as Co-CEO, responsible for sales, operational management, financing and accounting. I have participated as a speaker in a social entrepreneurship panel organized by the British council as well as a conference on Urban Development solutions organized by N-Gage consultancy group.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
