Summary

 I am a curious, ambitious, multilingual student looking for new opportunities and challenges in international environments. Throughout previous work and experiences with sales and leadership, I have discovered the joys of working in teams as well as individually, and  developed skills that include dedication, positivity, team work, creativity and organization. My international background and experiences are advantages I believe gives me the ability to adapt to new situations and environments, and to be humble and strong at the same time.

Currently in search for an internship in the are of sales in the period May/June – August 2016.
