Mays Fandakly

Innovative | Critical | Energetic | Results-oriented | Empathic

Mays switched to a Master's degree in Entrepreneurship after completing her Bachelor's degree in Communication Studies and a minor in Business Administration. In her student days, she co-founded (through Enactus) a social enterprise supporting women distanced from the labor market. In the following years, she worked with her own team on a sustainable online clothing search engine and co-founded Bijendoekies: an alternative to plastic sandwich bags and foil. In this, she was responsible for the overall strategy and led several collaborations with large companies. She also worked part-time as a freelance consultant Digital Transformation. A characteristic of Mays is her optimistic and driven attitude where she quickly gets to the heart of the problem. After a long day at the office, Mays gets very happy from a game of boxing or other forms of sport. Otherwise, she can also burn off her energy playing theatrically or with friends on the terrace.
