About Me

I am a passionate, and an ambitious individual who seeks to immerse herself with meaningful work, applying myself to every situation with a strong work ethic, enthusiasm, optimism and tenacity. Doing my part to give back to society is a cause that is extremely near and dear to my heart. I am always looking to expand my knowledge base in pursuit of success, taking risks and stepping out of my comfort zone, and constantly improving myself as an individual and professional, enjoying a challenge, always striving for excellence and making the most out of any situation. I see tasks through with the utmost of diligence, discipline and consistency.

I am a logical and critical thinker, with strong analytical skills that will hopefully make me an asset to any company. I possess patience, consideration of innovative approaches and ideas, good communication skills whilst interacting within my work environment. I won’t hesitate to compromise and sacrifice for the better. I adapt to teamwork, thriving under pressure, and equally flourishing on my own. I one day aspire to be certified/chartered with the corporate finance institution.
