I see myself as a self motivated individual who enjoys organizing, meeting needs, and working with people to accomplish their goals.

My career goal is to work with students, teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. It is my hope to be able to cultivate a knowledge and appreciation for the English language and culture in such students, while fostering an equal appreciation for their various cultures.
