"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it."



I am a creative who thrives on ideas.

I have always been a quick learner. Although my time at university is over, I would love to use my creativity and skills in a full-time position at a publishing house. My strengths include writing, creative processing, thinking outside the box to make connections, collaboration and leading others to get a task done.
