Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our November 2017 Young Professional of the Month! The goal of our publications is to provide positive, successful role models who will inspire the next generation of young professionals. Preliminary criteria for YPM candidates is that they are actively engaged in an entrepreneurial initiative or have made a successful career for themselves, thereby serving as strong role models to the next generation of young professionals. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin and part of a humanitarian (educational, sociological, scientific, etc.) or environmentally — conscious field. Given the gradual expansion of our readership, we interview candidates who embrace a specific Hellenic philosophy best described in a word… Philotimo (φιλότιμο). The most important qualifications all our candidates share are the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others.
We had the pleasure of meeting month’s YPM – Assemblywoman and 2017 NYC Republican Mayoral Candidate, Nicole Malliotakis – at the 2017 Archons Weekend in October. Her proactive dedication to serving the citizens of New York began at a very young age and has brought her to this moment, with the election only a few days away. Her amazing energy and thoughtfulness sets a remarkable standard for today’s youth and young professionals. We are very honored to share her story with you today.
