As a 22-year-old, highly motivated, creative and hard working person, I believe that I can offer a new perspective on problem solving and perseverance in the work environment. I am a fast learner and work well with other people. I have a 4-year BA Information Design degree from the University of Pretoria, and have had some work experience in the industry both as an intern and as a freelance designer. I am very keen to widen my horizons because I enjoy learning new things.
Above all I believe there is no substitute for hard work.
