Being a girl living in my 20s, I strongly believe that I should choose a right path for my career. In my opinion, a good career is not only a job that can offer me a good income to afford my living, but is enjoyable as well. That’s why I think a job in Marketing field will suit me well.
I had spent a great amount of time on defining my strengths and weaknesses as well as asking for advice from other people.

They contributed a lot to developing my set of skills. During years of study, majoring in literature, I was often considered to be among the best students.
