Global Perspective

Aponi Geletko

When talking about life, one thing Aponi believes is that life is about taking risks and what we do with those risks is what makes life great. So always striving to be better than her yesterdays self is a must, because living life to the fullest and leaving her mark within someone else's life is what counts; making her unforgettable. When leaving her mark within someone's life, she wants to make sure she exhibits the best version of who she is. Asking, how can she identify specifically with what makes her, her? Not only does Aponi love who she is but she also loves people.
