Through her talk, Andi Frkovich seeks to dispel stereotypes of veterans as ‘rigid’ or ‘overly obedient’ by explaining how military training and culture teaches service members to think critically and cultivate agility, especially in chaotic situations. In doing so, she also hopes to share some valuable lessons that can be applied to bring order from chaos in daily life. Andi is currently a first-year MBA student at London Business School. Prior to starting her MBA, Andi served as a Surface Warfare Officer in the U.S. Navy. She spent her first two years as a Division Officer onboard a Guided Missile Cruiser, where she led cross-functional teams in executing diverse missions at sea. She then served as a Platoon Commander for a Coastal Riverine Security Squadron, where she led security escorts of shipping traffic in the Persian Gulf. Andi holds a BA in Arabic Language from Duke University and an M. Phil in Politics from the University of Cambridge. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
