Philo4Thought Mentoring community is pleased to present this month’s “Young Professional of the Month” Feature Article! Preliminary criteria for YPM candidates is that they are actively engaged in an entrepreneurial initiative or have made a successful career for themselves. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin, based in New York, and part of a humanitarian or environmentally-conscious field. The goal of the monthly features is to inspire the next generation of young professionals by providing positive and successful role models who have achieved success in areas our readers ultimately hope to pursue. Essential qualifications? Spirit, perseverance, and – most importantly – the compassionate heart that enables them to share their knowledge and experience with others.
“Today’s young professional feature touches specifically on the remarkable qualities of a working mom. What do they represent? Beyond striving for professional excellence, such women seek personal fulfillment at a variety of levels, not only for themselves, but for their family and their community. The overall journey and support needed to make this diversified lifestyle work tends to be more amazing than people realize. Philo4Thought asks: What does it take to be a successful working mom in a cosmopolitan New York environment?”
