Personal pitch

I see myself as an analytic thinker, ambitious, and well-disciplined, with high standards. I am orientated towards family, community development and social activities that motivate me to do great things for myself and other people. I believe that accepting challenges is the foundation of my life experiences and something I do with confidence. I am tenacious and a proactive organizer and coordinator with a hands-on approach to work. I am a very committed individual with pride in being direct, spontaneous, innovative and communicative. I have excellent problem-solving skills, expert at multi-tasking and need little direction to complete assigned tasks. It is of utter most importance to me, to contribute meaningfully towards building systems of administration and management that are responsive to current challenges.
