WHY ME?
Ambitious & Determinated
The sky’s the limit. Some might say the key to life is being realistic, but in my opinion there is no such thing as being surrealistic. Ideas which are too crazy don’t exist, everyone can reach their dream with passion and dedication.
Assertive
It trills me to speak in front of a crowd, it’s always a puzzle how to make people understand your message. Fortunately I happen to love puzzling and therefore unravelling the mystery behind communication.  
Creative
One of the most important values for me is being creative. Wherever you go creativity plays a part. I myself am very much interested in designing, writing and composing. Those interests together form a pretty decent profile to provide new ideas.
Critical
I am always examining provided work critically, there’s always room for improvement. This is a great way of discovering new and better ways to handle matters.
Curious
The fact that I’m pretty much interested in almost everything you could imagine on earth shows that I love spending my time learning new things. Whether it be a simple task or a difficult formula, I am always happy to learn. In my view learning makes your future brighter.
Positive
What would happiness be without being at least a little bit positive. I always try to look at the bright side of life and help others do the same, ‘cause wouldn’t the world look a lot better if we all thought in solutions instead or problems?
