About Me

I consider myself to be a hard working and goal oriented person, striving to learn as much as I can about the business and marketing world. My wide range of passions include the entertainment industry (theatre and music), history, and traveling the world. I am most interested in learning about how various cultures interact with one another in business settings, something that has driven me in my international studies and travels. 

I am searching for an employer who values innovative ways of thinking. I want to feel valued from my managers and this includes receiving relevant and often trainings for personal and professional development. I am a firm believer in learning while doing and will never take a passive seat on assignments. I diligently believe that you get out of projects the effort which you put in them, meaning I will always give my 110%.
