Why should you hire me?
I am the right person for the job because I am one of the few (and lucky) people who can say their work does not feel like a job or a chore, it is a lifestyle choice. Because of this, my work efforts are full of passion and true dedication. Also, I have both personal and professional experiences in this role, giving me more relevance and empathy than other candidates.
