YVAN BELMONTE CESPEDES

Curious he spends a lot of time reading all kinds of books, chess player, always very enthusiastic and full of energy he never stops.
His catchwork ? "Have less, share more".
Very happy to be part of this human, unique and rewarding experience.
“Be the exception”; “Do not just do what others do”; “Don’t be a follower” that is a philosophy, a standard that I live up to - If others are smarter, have more talent or are more experienced; you still can win! Work harder! Study longer! Challenge yourself! And push yourself further than anyone else! In my opinion everything is achievable, if you simply choose to. Everything is a choice. Everyone can choose the present and the future. I chose to be a Business Management & Marketing Student in Brussels, to be an active member of Business Student Society Committee Brussels, to be a Jury member at Elevator Pitch Events in Germany, to be an Entrepreneur and to have an awesome experience by volunteering for TEDxULB. I want to do what I am passionate about and use my energy to create the success that I desire.
