In 1996-1997, I participated in the Future Leaders Exchange Program. I was lucky to live in one of the biggest cities of the world – New York. My first trip to the United States gave me a good start to my future education abroad, which eventually led me to a successful career.

In New York, I graduated from Tottenville High School with a Diploma with Honors. I felt it was not enough, and soon after I got my education in economics at Nottingham University Business School, London, UK where I majored in Marketing and General Management.

After finishing my education I worked for the investment fund SigmaBleyzer.  After that, I worked for one of the largest cell providers in Ukraine – Kyivstar, where my project “djuice” brought in over $2 billion in the six years of my work there. Now I run my own consultancy business “Acctiva Consulting”.

I am sure my first trip to the U.S. helped me in achieving what I have now. It was definitely a good start to my further achievements.
