Bio

I have an inborn sense of idealism and morality. What sets me apart is that I am not an idle dreamer, but I am capable of taking concrete steps to realize my goals and make a lasting positive impact.

I see helping others as my purpose in life, and my real passion is to get to the heart of the issue. I find it easy to make connections with others, and have a talent for warm, sensitive language, speaking in human terms, rather than with pure logic and fact. I am softspoken and take great care of other’s feelings.
