Success in this world to me is being able to help improve the human condition, whether it be a few people or society as a whole." - Muna Yuusuf ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Excellence Profiles are back! We know you missed them 😉. We’re relaunching the series with some wonderful words of wisdom from Muna Yuusuf, a corporate and investment bank analyst based in London. Her curiosity and desire for a challenge led her to this career path. She had no previous exposure to this field but found that she became more interested the more she looked into it. Muna's advice to her younger self would be to not fear the unknown and to ask the important questions as early as possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Muna had some advice for us as well. From personal experience, she knows that to be a Somali youth in the diaspora, is to always feel like an outsider in one way or another. We do not always fit neatly into a box. She encourages us to view this as a strength, because as a result we can be quite good at being adaptable which is a great transferable skill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Great advice Muna! We wish you the best in your career and look forward to see where your curiosity takes you next!
