We interacted with a different group of children each week, coordinating group discussions and activities to help the students work together as a team and build self-esteem and confidence.

Summary

I consider myself a well-rounded, organized, hard working, and self-motivated individual who enjoys performing individual tasks as well as working as a part of a team. I am able to think strategically, motivate others and I have the ability to learn new things fast.

As someone who has lived overseas for seven years, I have a lot of experience adapting to new situations and working with diverse groups of people. I also have a desire for opportunities where I can learn and try new things, meet new people, and come alongside others to help them reach their full potential as well.

If I were hired on as a member of your organization I would consider it a great honor and opportunity to work with your team to learn, grow, and serve others. Thank you very much for reviewing my resume and considering my application!

Sincerely,

Miranda Joy Steinert
