💪Skills & Strengths
I am very organized with my work, from time management to organizing my computer files. I communicate with my project partners on a regular basis to provide my updates on my work. I am ridiculously punctual, making sure I arrive to work at least a half-hour before my shift starts. I am also very dedicated to my work: if I feel like my colleagues and customers don't respect or they dismantle my work, I will feel very angsty.
