    Pakistan - Last active: 21 days ago - Tests: 3

    My experiences over the last few years have been diverse in many ways. I am a Pakistani and attended state schools there till the 13 years of age. In 2008, my family moved to Brazil, for a three years diplomatic assignment. At Brasilia, I joined American International School of Brasilia (EAB) which emphasised on issue based, leadership driven analytical studies. For interaction with Brazilian students and the community, I had to learn Portuguese language, otherwise learning American English was a compulsion. Today, I am fluent in Urdu, English and Portuguese. Frequent interaction with international students and communities both at school and outside added to my understanding of different cultures and governance systems of various nations. More importantly, I came to learn about economies of various countries. Unprecedented economic growth of Brazil post military regime of 1964-85 further evoked my interest in study of economics. This experience of tenure abroad expanded my vision, increased my knowledge and developed great confidence in me. Looking through some of the quality newspaper and magazines, I realized that most of the main headlines address economic problems compared to other issues. This made me understand the increasing importance of economic related disciplines to the modern world resulting in enhanced quest to pursue the study of this subject at a higher level. I have developed a particular interest in studying the behaviour of the countries and large organisations under difficult economic situations and the formulation of their strategies to come out of the arduous times. I have, therefore, based my A-level coursework in this field. During last school year, I participated in an economics and business competition called the Aitchison Business Concept (ABC '12), in which I had to formulate marketing strategies and exhibit them in different ways i.e. making television commercials etc. I enjoyed the opportunity by incorporating some of business economic theories into my work. In the process I was able to enhance my leadership, management and communication skills. I found the experience rewarding and fulfilling.Study of some real life scenarios explaining different economic theories helped me in understanding and scrutinizing how the world of business is influenced by economics. I have found economics to be a challenging and diverse discipline. I am, therefore, interested in the study of both macro and micro economics. It is this variation of perspective, combined with its real world importance that makes economics an appealing subject to study at university. I also have the experience of serving as a brand ambassador of British Counsil.

    expert in administrative works with great communication skills.

    Philippines - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2

    I am a graduate of business administration course major in management. Been working for 3 years. First in a travel agency for a year of experience as accounting assistant and admin assistant/reservation officer. That was my first job when I learned and applied everything that I had during my studies. Learned how to work with people and deal with them in a professional ways. Second, I worked as customer service rep in a chemical company. Working in a multinational company became a great challenge for me but I had overcome. From finishing every task they have given,dealing with different kind of customers to becoming a successful in this field. And the last job I had was still becoming a customer specialist rep in a BPO company where my task is to deal with foreign customers, hearing and solving their concerns about the company's services and products. My confidence in dealing with different kind of people has been boosted for they were really challenging to handle. My communication skills improved a lot and I learned how to deal with them easily by knowing what they really needed and not prioritizing what you need from them. I have to quit my job for I have to take care of my son who needed most of my attention. But I being a full time mom should not hinder me from achieving what goals in life most importantly in my career life. That is why I started applying and trying online job where I can work and share my skills and knowledge,earn at the same time and being a full time mom.
