About me

I am a reliable, organized and proactive individual, possessing good leadership and exceptional interpersonal skills and I am also a self-motivated individual with great integrity and enthusiasm.

 

The learning and training experiences gave me a great chance to start learning on how to work in teams and it helped me a lot when going to the cooperate world.

 

These experiences I have proven that I can handle high stress level environments with ease and perform well under pressure, I also possess outstanding analytical skills. Working in all the different fields that I have worked, it helped to be a firm believer on independence but also acknowledge that interdependence is even better.

 

I believe that the experience that I have accumulated has prepared me for the future that I am hoping for. Moreover as an employee, my belief is to deliver the best of what is being offered and work above my limits. In all the sectors that I have worked for I have always been reaching and exceeding the targets and I tend to want to keep that standard.
