I am a dynamic, goal orientated, hard worker, that is willing and able to learn and grow. I have had significant life experience that taught me many valuable survival principles.
I started working at the age of as a cashier, when my father passed away in a car accident, to support my alcoholic mother and my three siblings. I learned from a young age how to deal with customers, it was very important to my employer that his employees treat clients in a friendly helpful manner and that the client is always right and when they really are not, its between upper management and them
I knew that I had to do more with my life and approached my boss to sponsor my education. In , I attended a private college to complete my education. The first year I did my grade and the following year I completed grade and . Having to work at and finding resources to educate myself, gave me a fairly good understanding of how tough the world is and how being a hard worker can help create new opportunities as well as how to take advantage of every possibility how ever ridiculous it might seem.
In I had a baby girl; the father abandoned us, so I was left a single mother, working while trying to educate myself. Being a single mother strengthened my personality, I learned to be tough.
Working as a hostess at Mugg & Bean, I managed to fund years of law of modules. I failed at modules and would have to redo them. I felt disharted and didn&;t want to waste more money at something that I was seemingly not very good at and had no passion for.
I then obtained a certificate in public relations, but knew that half a degree and a certificate will not take me far, and started looking for better opportunities.
In I decided that I would take a year course in multimedia. I enjoyed the projects very much and passed all of my assessment projects over years, subjects/modules, with assessments per subject with distinctions. I am skilled in working with Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver; my d rendering is not the best. I achieved distinctions in Copyright Law, Target Marketing, Ideas Generation, Product Creation, Design techniques and Project Management. The subject I worked hardest on was Corporate Identity, I felt that corporate identity and public relations were a good combination and have since self educated me about these subjects even more.
In I immigrated to Portugal from South Africa and currently live in Funchal. I was given an opportunity to work with the InterGovernmental Group of Twenty Four, redesigning their logo and creating a new website for them. They are situated in Washington D.C and I have had to work corresponding long distance.
I think that I am easy to work with, friendly, willing to listen and patient, but not too personal, I belief my work life and private life are two different aspects of my life and should not be mixed.
