Portfolio

Personal Feautures

  • I am able to work as a project leader, as a team member or as an individual without much supervision
  • I am inspired by challenges and new experiences, constantly learning new things and gaining new skills
  • I am capable of working under pressure
  • I am a creative individual with a friendly outgoing personality and approachable attitude.
  • I am extremely adaptable and fast-learning
  • I was a national team equestrian rider for 10 years and am to date internationally recognized for endurance riding.  I have represented Namibia in several countries not only as a team member, but also as captain and team manager.  This surely indicates that I am self-driven, hard-working, with the ability to not only work with a team, but to take on a leadership role, that I have incredible endurance and a healthy and strong mentality.
  • As a student in secondary school, hospitality was one of my favorite subjects.  My keen interest in this allowed me the opportunity to build up practical experience in customer service and care, management, etiquette and problem management.
