    I lived in the US during high school. I studied International Relations in college, a qualified English-Indonesian translator. I typed 55 wpm in speed. I have experience of working in several multinational companies and was known to have keen eyes for details, and quick to spot grammatical errors, syntax, and sorts. I was a Customer Relations Officer at IALF (job desc included phone calls screening, email responding, prospective customer research), and then a Secretary at AusAid (assisting foreign engineers in meetings, typing official correspondences to the city mayor, translating and interpreting, preparing presentation slides, recruiting office assistants). Browsing the internet is my #1 hobby.
