I want to work in a research organization that offers opportunity for growth, where I can apply and build on the skills acquired in both undergraduate and previous work experiences.

Ideal Workplace Values

The ideal workplace is openminded by the positive and honest communication of the employees and management. The atmosphere would be "easy-going" so that networking opportunities are readily available.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I feel like I am more attentive than others, especially since I am on the autistic spectrum. When I learn of an news story that is currently happening, I like research to know the basics of what is going on. Also, I like to hear others' opinions on the story. I am a curious person who likes to know everything. I don't like to hear one side around me, even though I may agree with that particular side. It can get boring.
