Summary

As a Sociology Grad, I became interested in working towards the advocacy of society and construction of development programs for primary education relating to leadership and dance; seeking internships and/or job opportunities where knowledgeable skills can be utilized to gain experience in the study of social behaviors by examining the effects of influence, interactions, organizations and institutions. I am a creatively innovated thinker who is optimistic, cooperative, passionate and dedicated to my obligations.
