  Display standardized information

I find myself to be the kind of person that stands up to the test and gives a 100% striving to reach the goal. I've always handled information that is important for others and feel comfortable doing so. I'd also like to highlight that my multicultural experience has helped me to fit into teams with an attitude of accountability, self-discipline and pro-activity.
