Skills

Passion for technology

I am always eager to develop my skill set, not just when it comes to writing but also when it comes to social media and programming. I have a fair amount of experience with languages like HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Java, and C++.

Quick learner

I can quickly adapt to new environments and thrive in challenging situations. I bring a positive attitude with me wherever I go and I want to help others with any and all challenges.

Natural teacher

I enjoy teaching others all sorts of different things, from complex technical notions to simpler soft skills. I take pride in my ability to understand various topics in-depth and then show others how to do the same.
