TEDxUofISpringfield talk from Menno Servaes -- When Should You Choose to Ignore Your Gut?
Menno Servaes is an international student from Belgium, pursuing a bachelor degree in Business administration at the University of Illinois Springfield. Menno serves as the student senator for the college of business and management and is the captain of the UIS Men’s tennis team. As a sophomore, he connected with a faculty mentor and started leading his own research project. He now uses his experience to mentor others as the president of the Research Society. Menno chooses to develop himself through intentional actions that push him out of his comfort zone. He does this by focusing on everyday decisions, such as seeking help from mentors and taking responsibility for the things he can control. Menno realizes that by fully developing himself, he can better guide and mentor others towards their highest potential.
