Linkedin
After changing 5 countries in 2 years (10 in life), I've currently settled in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It's a result of a colourful journey filled with brilliant people, witnessed and gained wisdom, a lot of determination, hard work and love. I have graduated from Vilnius Lyceum, Stockholm School of Economics in Riga (Bsc in Economics), Rotterdam School of Management (CEMS Msc.) and ESADE Business School (CEMS MSc.). The first one landed me a job in a PR agency Publicum where I learned how much good a bright mentor can do with&for a young person and that I needed to learn much more in my life. The Bachelors degree taught me resilience and hard work and landed me a job at Omnitel (Lithuania) as a Project Manager leading B2C Offering for 3 years. Finally, my masters degree earned me an internship in Brand Management at Google (Belgium), an Analytics job at Uber (Poland) and now CRM job at UberEATS (the Netherlands) as well as, most importantly, my partner in life. These are facts hiding hundreds of stories and lessons that can be insightful for you too: from motivation or lack thereof, numerous tests, exams and interviews to how to not lose yourself in a truly global world, how to keep your strong and weak social ties in tact and how to enjoy and let go (still learning that one every day).
