About me

I would like to say about myself that I am a very ambitious, sportive and responsible person. I love spending my free time outdoors, reading books or listening to music. My favourite activities are playing basketball and dancing. I like working with people and I enjoy meeting their needs and expectations.
I have had many different jobs in many different fields of expertise. I believe this has helped me understand how different areas work. I have met and worked with a wide variety of people of different ages, genders, backgrounds and cultures and this for me has been wonderful as I have managed to understand how the differences in terms of cultures and behaviours can make the difference when it comes to succeeding in an important project. I have good communication skills, good capacity to work in a team and also an open mind. I am very passionate with everything I do, I have many good ideas and I am a quick learner of anything new! I am also a hopeless dreamer because I think that with lots of work, love and devotion we can make this world a better place!
