About Me

An individual who is diverse and possesses a myriad of soft skills and attributes. I am a hardworking individual who dedicates entirely to what I put my mind to. I work well independently and in collaboration with others because I am personable and have empathy, with abilities to teach, influence and persuade others. My core strengths include being reliable and diligent. I am ambitious, dedicated and persistent. I believe that the most important value is honesty, therefore being ethical is embedded in my mindset. I aspire to become a chartered accountant and to leave my footprints in the corporate world, especially to stand for women’s rights and ensure that in our era and generation we achieve gender equality, and just equality in all its forms. I am the eldest of five children. When I am not trying to convert my dreams and aspirations into reality, you can find me with my nose in a novel, I am low-key obsessed with reading paranormal romance books or watching any of my favorite series, I am a movie fanatic as well.
