As an economics student at the London School of Economics, I used my problem-solving and research skills during my first year of study.

During the event, the team leader was absent due to illness and so I was promoted to team leader to lead the team. As a team leader, I accurately executed the instructions of two managers while leading the team.

However, after a series of discussions with colleagues and the support of managers, issues such as lack of coordination were quickly resolved and the efficiency of operations increased significantly. As a result, an 11% increase in the number of participants was recorded compared to the number of participants during the first two days. I received a bonus for this achievement. Not only did it give me insight into the realities of a business environment, but it also helped me develop important skills such as leadership, teamwork, and customer relationship management.
