"During the last 3 weeks I have been contacted by dozens of very interesting people, from journalists to entrepreneurs to people with social enterprises and much more. It's been a hectic few weeks with meetings and video calls, but I think the network of people that has been created is going to be a very positive influence on my career," maintains the telecommunications engineer.
