About the speakers

Breaking barriers | Alexandra Mohnhaupt Quintana

Alexandra Mohnhaupt Quintana wrote her name in the history book of Formula 4, when she became first woman in the world to win an FIA Formula 4 race in the 2017-2018 NACAM Championship. Her hard work and dedication brought success in her racing career and paid off when she was moved up to racing Formula 3. After suffering an unfortunate car crash during one of the testing rounds, she made the hardest decision of her life to stop racing to face the anxiety, depression and trauma she experienced in the aftermath of her crash.

What does success look like? | Brian Haugen

In May 2016, Brian Haugen was appointed social media producer at The International Olympic Committee. He was tasked with creating successful video content for their social media platforms. But what really is success? At the start, he believed that it was all tied to engagement and the number of views. After several years of creating moving and emotional content, his personal life began to become affected. An incident at the 2016 Olympics in Rio made him re-evaluate the meaning and his perception of what success is. “It’s at that moment that I felt that this is what success looks like…it’s happiness”.
Listen to his pursuit of success here.
