Resumé


cv_contract_agreement_resume_paper_document-512I come from a humble family whose biggest asset has always been our values. Honesty, Integrity, Respect and Persistence were the four pillars of my education. My parents taught me that if I had these 4 values present in my actions as much as I could, there would be nothing I wouldn’t be able to achieve. I value those lessons now more than ever.

I consider myself a very creative, organized, fast paced and skilled individual with very good social and communication skills and a distinct sense of humour. I am very good at problem solving and prioritizing tasks and a very fast learner, who always tries to keep a positive attitude and a friendly team environment.
