EMEC 2020 Scholarship Recipient

Please tell us about the scholarship you have received and its impact.
The MPI Foundation made it possible to push my boundaries and get to know people.

Do you have a message for the sponsors and individuals who donate to make scholarships possible?
Thank you so much for making this possible for me! I could not believe that I was in Sevilla for work. I enlarged my working experience and because of you I have met new people in the meeting and event industry. This can help me in my future career.

How has this scholarship impacted your career, and where do you see yourself in this industry in the future?
I got to know new people in the event industry. It impacted my working experience and maybe I see myself in the meeting and event industry as a marketer.

Please share any additional information about your scholarship you might want the MPI Foundation, its staff, or supporters to know.
It is great when you work with the next generation, so they can be included in the activities. It was incredible for me to experience this. I can recommend this for other students.
