About meEverything that I've done to this day is led by the principle of leadership and aiming high. Upon acquiring Economics degree from Vilnius University, I've dipped my toes into talent management. This has taught me numerous communication and community building skills, which have come in extremely handy when I decided to switch to business development and operations. Having spent almost a decade of my career within the technology industry, I've realized that there are nowhere enough women in it and the situation needs to be shifted. That is exactly why I'm one of the co-founders of Women Go Tech mentorship initiative, which seeks to encourage women build their career in ICT and engineering. Not only has the project been patronized by the president of Lithuania - Dalia Grybauskaitė and supported by several international corporations, but it's also one of a kind here in Lithuania.

Citizenship and migration

Political theory and philosophy
I think political theory and philosophy should occupy a bigger share of our time and our discussions as it eventually shapes the way we choose to interact as individuals and as a society. So any question is worth the shared thinking and insight.
