Why did you choose LSE, and why did you choose your programme of study?

School's global reputation, the school’s academics, international student community as well as the postgraduate career options

Overall, how do you look back on your LSE experience?

I consider myself very proud and lucky to be part of the LSE Community. I have learned a lot from my professors and fellow students and have developed my skills as well as my understanding of the world I live in. I had the greatest time of my student life.

What would you recommend to students who are looking to enter the energy sector?

Career in the energy sector, without engineering degree. First objective is to gain experience in the sector through diversity of work assignment (Ministry of Finance, Embassy, Consultancy, European Commission) to be able to apply to international institutions (OECD is my dream employer)

Why did you choose your current job?

Energy sector, exposure to a diversity of clients and potential networking opportunities for future career.

What does your current job involve?

Delivery of solutions for clients, management of projects, international teamwork and exposure to sector of interest.

What advice do you have for LSE students?

Be ambitious. As a junior, you will not be hired for your competencies or experience, but for the high potential of your profile. LSE has offered you a fantastic opportunity to higher this potential, so be proud and ambitious. Know your value.
