Im bright, extroverted & bilingual, with a passion for knowledge, culture and people. Im focused on exploring the marketing world with a company that appreciates curiosity and innovation like I do. Im currently enrolled in Ryersons Communication and Culture Graduate program. My priority during the last two years has been to explore Europe through travel while living abroad. This experience taught me not only to be open-minded, but also to be flexible and quick thinking when presented with new situations. My most valued characteristic is the ability to look at the bigger picture through a thoughtful consideration of every side of a given situation in order to come up with new solutions.
