“Mentoring Matters - How Mentors Change Your Life”

Trying to do great things is difficult. Trying to do them alone is, more often than not, impossible. That’s why many great leaders have mentors, and also mentor others. No matter how competent you may feel, at any segment of your life, success is, in reality, a team sport. "In order to have influence, you have to be influenced."

Coming from a long line of educators, she has worked with upper-level governmental departments in her native country, including The President, The Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs, as well as many diplomatic embassies and consulates. She is an author of a monograph book (The Intercultural Communication within Mass-Culture), which had been awarded on many occasions. Her academic dedication has been recognized with the prestige award for “Best Young Researcher for 2013”. The initial concern of her work is to adapt the theoretical knowledge to actual social situations, producing knowledge that is pragmatic. She was a part of the faculty team at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, and the University of Texas in Tyler. Aleksandra is strongly dedicated to enriching the lives of students outside the classroom, attempting to inspire growth in her students by giving them tools to take into disciplines and into other domains of their life. Among these tools are a sense of curiosity, open-mindedness and a thirst for knowledge.
