    I am very creative when it comes to brainstorming. I can easily identify problems, analyze situations, and develop strategies to disentangle unpredictable outcomes and make it favorable to all parties involved. I set goals, and make it a point to go above and beyond those very goals I have set. I have amazing time management skills, and do it efficiently wholeheartedly. I am a team player, yet independent as well. I have always been that person that everyone could rely on.
