Skills

Skills

Communication

I'm in the zone whenever I'm sharing with groups and strangers about the causes I believe in, be it through words, drama or graphic design. I devote myself to delight and to provoke deep conversations.As an artist, my preoccupation to express our message, my occupation is to impress our leads, and I perform in both. As a marketer, I treat every person who steps into my life as a gift, and it makes my day to bring the right people and the right ideas from different walks of life together.

Teaching

Growing up with 4 cousins aged 3-10 in the same house gave me infinite patience and a knack with children. I know how to handle tantrums. I can inspire behaviours based on identity-forming not punishment-reward. I appreciate how impressionable young minds are, and hence I'm conscious of my language of virtue and calibrate my impact based on sound neurological research. With young adults, I clocked over 300 hours facilitating youth camps, tutoring as well as mentoring. Having gone through the ups and downs of this formative stage myself, I can easily identify with the struggles of the 13-30 age group, yet easily step outside my ego and tilt their narratives, allowing them to see things from a fresh perspective.

Writing

My deep understanding of the human condition and psychology allow my stories to touch people. Every word is intentional. Every sentence is an invitation. I hone my craft such that readers discover themselves through my writing.

Social Media Marketing

I am seasoned in building close-knit, scalable communities by constantly engaging conversation with original, thought-provoking stories and delightful graphics. Among the range of social media platforms, Facebook groups are my specialty.

Research

I'm trained in the scientific methodology of researching and adept at interpreting and presenting statistics.
