"From the moment I met Airies, it was clear that she had experiences, knowledge and aspirations that spanned well beyond the recruitment skills we needed. Airies was always incredibly professional and conscientious in everything she did while with Midan. I also enjoyed hearing about her education and the multiple passions and dreams she has for impacting the lives of kids and young professionals. I have no doubt Airies will have an impact on many companies and lives as she continues to pursue those dreams."
