Dreamers with Purpose
Throughout my career, I have always led with purpose and tried to help others do the same in work and in their personal lives.

They understand how brands should look for ways to fulfill Gen Z’s desire to express themselves while also satiating their tech habits. They have come up with an awesome new term called “Storyliving” which entails helping others dream better, and make their dreams come true via technology and being an authentic brand with integrity. Samsung gets that brands should look for ways to fulfill Gen Z’s desire to express themselves while also satiating their tech habits.
