Introduction

I am an out-going, friendly 21-year-old looking for casual or part-time employment while I finish my University degree. I love trying new things and I always put a substantial amount of effort into everything I do. I enjoy working in a team environment, however I am also capable of working predominantly by myself. I am looking forward to adding to the experience I already have and further developing the skills I possess.
