I’m very collaborative and have recently preferred to work in groups although this wasn’t always the case. In the project teams I’ve directed, members work with a variety of people and are motivated by diverse creative tasks. I’m an empathetic person who’s skilled at relating to people and making them feel heard. I have extremely strong writing skills. I’ve worked as a freelance editor and writer for 3 years in several industries, and am committed to both creative excellence and performance metrics when it comes to my work. I’ve had to learn how to find the perfect balance between that creativity and analytics, and it’s a personal passion of mine to demonstrate what good writing can achieve for the bottom line—in advertising or otherwise. I never miss a deadline. I’m highly organized, and I’ve applied my natural skill for organizing people and projects to all aspects of my work. I’m enthusiastic, passionate and driven. I’m honest, patient, respectful and also very disciplined... these are traits my mum instilled in me from childhood.
I can be too critical of myself. A pattern I’ve noticed throughout my career is that I often feel I could have done more, even if objectively, I’ve done well. I am a perfectionist. I always want to have something done perfectly to the last detail and this can sometimes lead to me spending too much time and threatening deadlines. I default to believing that I can solve any problem on my own. This works well in some situations, but in many cases, I need the help of others to overcome factors beyond my control
