I consider myself to be a highly adaptable and resilient individual. Through my experiences abroad, I have come to appreciate and enjoy the changes that life offers. I have seen first hand the ways a person can benefit from being able to recognise and utilise challenging situations for the opportunities they present by maintaining a flexible character, and being able to adapt to your environment. Plans rarely go exactly the way we initially picture them to. This is not a failure, but rather an unexplored path that has the potential to lead to an even better result than originally imagined. Having lived and worked in several different countries and established relationships all over the world, I have learned how to become flexible and fluid in my surroundings, and to open my eyes to perspectives and ideas that I never would have seen at home. I love knowing that I can be happy and comfortable no matter where in the world I am.
I have gained a lot of experience in team settings through my professional and educational careers. My online studies at the University of Phoenix require weekly Learning Team assignments and projects to be coordinated and completed remotely through the use of e-communication tools. Also, the marketing team that I manage for Realy has helped me to grow both as a leader and as a follower. I have learned that being an effective leader often times means stepping back in order to let others step forward. I recognise that managing a team is not about telling your members what to do, but instead it is about coordinating the strengths and skills of all members, and helping to bring each individual's best qualities to the forefront for the team to build off of together. This creates a richer result than what a mere combination of individual efforts could ever produce.
This year, I was selected to single-handedly establish and govern a new office in the U.S. as a part of the University of North Carolina Charlotte’s incubator program, PORTAL. Responsible for establishing brand awareness in the U.S., I have developed a marketing campaign and individualy selected and trained a team of marketing interns to help me achieve our goals. As a part of these efforts, I have developed a plan to increase our Corporate Social Responsibility through community involvement and volunteer activities. As a start-up company with a very tight budget, I have designed all of our marketing and client outreach campaigns to have the maximum impact for the minimum investment, which has successfully increased our client base by over 4,000 accounts in a span of 6 months.
I know myself, and I know that there is no situation I cannot overcome. I am determined, capable, creative and powerful, and these are the qualities that will continue to bring me success in my life and my career. These are the qualities that will help me bring success to your organization.
