I graduated with merits from Les Roches Marbella International School of Hotel Management's BBA program with a minor in Small & Medium Enterprise Management.

I consider myself a person with a strong self-motivation, organized, passionate, honest, good communication skills, hard worker and always trying to do the best I can in everything I do. I am currently looking for Job opportunities abroad in order to gain more experience and grow as an outstanding professional.

I have been actively working for the last four years in different departments, gaining knowledge from each experience. Moreover, my experience working and living abroad made me grow in every aspect and prepared me to enthusiastically face day-to-day challenges.
