The MIBA Team
I have been part of MIBA for two years before leading the only International Business association at the University of Toronto, Scarborough. I started in Strategy & Logistics, and then led the Finance, HR and Data Analytics teams as a Vice President specializing in preparing the long-term vision of MIBA.
The year of 2019-2020 will be a revolutionary year not only for our club, but also for our stakeholders: students, alumni, staff and employers who all strive to be Global Leaders! With an amazingly committed team, MIBA brings to you a year full of innovation!
What do I have to lead it? I am the perfect combination of work and fun. I’m made for uncertainties and tough situations and I am glad to say that this dates back to the very international spirit of me: travelling. I have lived in 4 countries on 4 separate continents. I have backpacked to multiple countries where I do not speak the language, I knowingly climbed an active volcanic peak in Bali, Indonesia, and did a 35-day road trip across the East Coast of Australia! Plus, this is also where I get all of fun stories so do say hi the next time to see me on campus!
