I am passionate and always go right to the target. In addition to my education, I have been active in numerous associations and committees. As an organizer, I pick up on things enthusiastically and do not let them go until everything is completed to the stakeholder's satisfaction. Analyzing issues and devising new structures are things I do not only excel in but also have a lot of fun to experience it. It has taught me to think structured and to keep the long term in mind. Furthermore, I currently manage IT business that comes with corporate responsibility.
