During my internship and as a sportsman I have learned to persevere to achieve great results. I excel in teamwork and combine a critical mind with a practical approach. Always eager to learn. As captain of a soccer team I have learned to coach and to motivate people. Although I can be impatient, I managed to transform this into a hands-on mentality.
