Mentor Statement:

“There are so many career opportunities and even much more degrees to go for. When talking to youngsters in school, I realize that there is so little knowledge about that and so many questions which way to go. Providing guidance for young people from various backgrounds by taking advantage of new technologies is cool and great idea. I am happy to support Pixis’ mission as I am convinced it is something good! “
