Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I can sometimes learn certain things faster than others. That must be why I passed the SOA (Society of Actuaries) Exams in succession by self-studying for months to prepare for them and became an expert at R programming in the last few years. My mathematical and statistical skills also caught the attention of MDs and PhDs at Johnson & Johnson, who approached me to conduct country risk analysis for them.
