Being a jigsaw-puzzle lover since my childhood and an engineer by training, I have always loved exploring new venues. I love getting challenged, both personally and professionally. I love adventures that push me to find my true potential. One of the experiences I will always remember is my hiking trip to Patagonia with 29 other friends. Wandering in the nature carrying a 70-pound backpack, crossing rivers and hiking mountains that I never thought I could hike taught me that I am stronger than I could ever imagine and that the sky is the limit. I embrace every day with this mindset and look forward to discovering what tomorrow will bring. I want to use my curiosity to have a positive impact in the world.
As a firm believer in continuous learning and mentoring, I'm seeking a challenging position where I can leverage my problem-solving, complex data analysis, and cross-functional communication skills to add immediate value to my future organization while continuing to grow professionally.
