Sharing the secret of a successful start-up, she said: “First of all, young people should define what they want, what their dream is, what their talent is, do the world need that talent, will they get paid for their solutions. If they have answered the above questions and then it's time to think about the career path. They should remember, it is not a walk in the park. You will only achieve worthy results for those who are determined to pursue their path”.
