Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our December 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 currently 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.
This month’s YPM, Paul T. Politis, has been a proactive member of the Annunciation Church Young Professionals Group for many years. He is also well-known for his philanthropic work in the nonprofit sector as an administrator in the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (www.theocpm.org), where he works diligently to help others make concrete progress towards daily improvement in their lives. We are honored to share his story with you today.
