Summary

Through previous job experiences and schooling, I have learned the importance of teamwork, honesty, trust, and commitment within an organization.  I strongly believe that my knowledge of cultures, religions, and disabilities taught at the Lethbridge College will be used on a daily basis as a police officer.  Ensuring that jobs are done thoroughly, as well as efficiently is a skill I take pride in doing.  Instructors at the Lethbridge College, as well as my past employers, will testify that I am honest, hardworking, cheerful and reliable.  Teamwork and organization are also skills that I possess.  Organization can be displayed through time management skills, observing the situation to see what needs to be completed, as well as multi-tasking abilities.

I received a full bursary through the government of Canada to attend the Cégep de Trois-Rivières to go to school for five weeks through the Explore program.  During my time in Trois-Rivières I was taught basic reading, writing, and speaking in French.  As well, we were taught common French slang, and how Canadian French is different than French spoke in France.  As well as going to school, we explored the French community, as well as going to Montreal and Québec City.
