I am very ambitious and I strive for perfection. I love reading, sport, socializing, helping those in need and gaining as much knowledge as possible. Indeed the worth of a woman isn’t reflected on a piece of paper or from her collection of trophies, it is reflected in the way she changes lives and helps those around her realize that they too can make a difference!

Contribution to Society:

Sunday School Teacher
Teach karate (volunteer)
Au pair- picks up and drops off children from school, home or activities
Tutor- younger learners by helping them with their homework.

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
If you need a hard working, loyal, friendly, ambitious,
Easy-to-teach employee –I AM HER!
