In this month’s installment of Behind the Buzz, get to know account manager Elisabetta Fernandez.
How would you spend one million dollars?
I would buy a beach house in Sardinia, Italy, where my family lives, so that I could wake up and drag my paddle board into the calm water and enjoy the serenity. After that I would travel to all the places I have on my list and find opportunities to really get to know the people in all these amazing places. And finally, if you are blessed, you should share. I would take a portion of that million and donate to places around the world to help establish housing, wells, or small schools.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year?
As I am nearing the end of my two-year MBA, I have learned so many great lessons from some amazing professors. One of them is that we shouldn’t focus all our efforts in fixing our weaknesses, but rather work on developing our strengths and talents. Our strengths make us successful, and in my opinion, if we work within our strengths we are fulfilling our purpose, which makes us much happier, more satisfied, and productive individuals.
What is a favorite memory you have during your time working with Wall Street Communications?
My birthday is in April, so I have found myself at NAB celebrating it many times. Celebrating with some of my colleagues in Vegas has been a lot of fun, especially because several people that work for Wall Street Communications also have birthdays around the same time. One year, we went out to celebrate my birthday and then continued the celebration starting at midnight for a colleague that had a birthday the following day.
