#KnowYourColleague – with this series of articles we highlight our colleagues’ hobbies and their stories. We aim to create a safe space where everyone is welcome to bond and share their adventures as we grow as a community.
Our colleague, Daniil Filipenco, is a copywriter in the Marketing Department. In his free time, he plays football, reads books and plays guitar.
Daniil started playing football when he was just 8 years old when he joined an academy with his friends. Ever since then his love for the sport continued to grow. The more he learned about football, the more captivated he became, realizing that it combined multi-tasking skills like strategic planning, co-operating and athleticism that proved useful later in life.
Playing with friends has made his ongoing journey captivating and enriched with joyful memories that will last a lifetime. The thrill of the game is another appealing aspect of it all; facing a skilled opponent pushes him to become better each time he plays and motivates the team to work together. Although he doesn’t play at a professional level, the friends he’s made along the way have make the experience all the more valuable.
