AnniePicHello Diamond Pro Readers! My name is Annie. I was born into a very peaceful family as a second child. I was very active and did a lot of sports in school. In high school, I became a skilled volleyball player and started going to tournaments. After few years of doing that, I fell in love with dancing, especially Latin styles (I was also a tap dancer before that). My friend and I went to an amateur contest, won, and started practicing with real dancers. It was an amazing experience.

AnniePic1After college, I decided to travel a bit (as something that my parents couldn’t afford to do with me). I always wanted to visit European countries, such as England, Norway, Austria and even Turkey (half Europe, half Asia), so I did. I had so much fun on my way and met a lot of very interesting people who became my friends.

One summer afternoon, after getting back from all my travels, a friend of mine invited me to a party that changed my life completely. That’s where I met Mike. We had gotten to talking and got along really well. A few weeks later, I mentioned that I was looking for a job and he offered me one immediately, as he was looking for an assistant that had time to deal with everyday work. It was an opportunity to start somewhere, so I said yes. During those first months of helping him, I became very interested in what he was doing and started learning more about diamonds. The company was growing very fast and they needed more people. By that time, I was already completely hooked, so when Mike offered me a better position, I said yes without a second thought.

DSC_0399I’ve been working for The Diamond Pro for over 4 years now and couldn’t be happier. After undergoing Mike’s long, comprehensive and intensive training under his close supervision, I started helping our readers on my own. Since then I have helped over 15,000 people, of which more than 7,400 ended up going with my advice and were very pleased with the results.

What these guys are doing is truly impressive and I’m very proud to be a part of it!
