West Hartford, Connecticut
‘I’m always searching for talented individuals that tackle large, difficult problems. I understand that grit—that hunger drove me to immigrate here for school when I was 18, having never before stepped foot in this country. As a polyglot and a traveler, I’m interested in linking networks that recognize a common language of impact. Building long-term meaningful relationships rooted in authenticity and trust can lead to opportunities for shared benefits for all involved. I’m steadfast with capable people that I believe are going to achieve great things, no matter how challenging the barrier in front of them.’
