Skills & other areas of interests
This may seem a tad bit strange but I love both numbers and words equally. I love how challenging dealing with numbers is and I love how words have the power to inspire, educate and relieve people of troubles and anxiety. I am extremely passionate about the performing arts and I have experience performing onstage as a dancer and actor. I love public speaking, writing and reading novels, comics and historical books as well. I also sketch, paint and draw in my free time. Moreover, I am interested in anything related to the business industry, especially areas that deal with marketing and finance.
