I am a performing arts and literature enthusiast, recently graduated with my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the City College of New York. I have years of writing, literary, and theater education, in addition to customer service and people skills. I hope to obtain a position where I can gain creative knowledge, and maximize my skills and abilities.
In return I foster the creation of an environment in which the company for which I work will benefit from my experience, positive interaction, and knowledge.
