I would like to consider myself ambitious, optimistic, easygoing and patient. I have great deal of patience even when people do not learn from their mistakes. I am willing to help anyone at any time. I am especially very good at learning about new cultures. As I’ve lived several different countries so far, I consider myself someone who can relate to any culture and background.
