Having Good communication skill, positive attitude, responsibility, punctual, hard worker, motivator and leadership quality don’t feel I have much weakness but probably I am a little bit emotional and touchy.

So,“Obtain a position as a team-player in a people-oriented organization where I can maximize my customer-service experience in a challenging environment to achieve the corporate goals".
