I've had lots of amazing opportunities, from teaching English in the Republic of Georgia and Italy, to working on policy & PR at NGOs. The favorite thing I've built is the social media for a gubernatorial candidate in the state of Illinois, while I was studying in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We were fairly unknown, my candidate was a startup founder who sold his company to a New York hedge fund and started getting involved in public policy & government. We were in a crowded field of 6 candidates, including many famous senators and business people such as the chairman of McDonalds and the Illinois Republican Party.
Despite the challenges, I got us to be the most followed on every social media platform, sometimes by 10X!
