Educating and affecting our next leaders

What bothers me the most and keeps me up at night, is how we can make a positive impact and make rights out of the wrongs we have in our country. For you that don't know me, I'm a doer. I never sit down discussing about the possible impact something would make, but rather, roll up my sleeves and get cracking on it, gather results, learn and if feasible continue doing. This is how we all work at the Cypriot Enterprise Link.
