Objective

I am looking for a part-time job or freelance work withing the field of communications because my current job at ICUBE-NEWYORK INC. isn't offering enough hours.

About Me

My greatest strength is determining people’s motivations and understanding the nuances of human interaction. My minor in Sociology, combined with my interest in Psychology, gives me a unique perspective on why people act the way they do on both an individual and group level.

My passion is acquiring knowledge and discovering the truth. I proactively ask questions and perform research when I am unsure about something. I am very logical in my approach to reality, so I put more weight into testable evidence when determining the truth compared to emotional appeals.

What sets me apart from my competition is my willingness to give and accept constructive criticism. Improvements can only be made once people realize that improvements are needed. When working in a group environment, I am willing to be the voice of descent because I respect people enough to tell the truth, even if the truth isn’t what they want to hear.
