Educational pathway

Formal educational experiences:
BSc. in Agriculture
MSc. in Breeding of Field Crops and Ecology

Non-formal educational experiences:
- Learning Designer & Trainer since December 2012
- Business & Life coach since January 2017
- Art of Hosting Practitioner & The Circle Way Facilitator since December 2013

The formal experiences gave me the knowledge every person needs to find a way to his/her life and make his/her parents happy :)
The non-formal experiences made me realize what I really need and want in my life. Being member of an Association opened new horizons for me. I've made friends for life, learned about intercultural diversity, became more open to people, and finally discovered more about myself.
