I am a global cosmopolitan. I have either lived, worked, traveled, or studied in over 30 countries.

Why does this make me a good employee?

1. I embrace and am familiar with change. Having experienced 20 hour bus rides sitting next to chickens, or finding my way to the peak of Kilimanjaro with a headlamp I seek new and unfamiliar environments.

2. I am a creative thinker. As someone who travels, I have had to understand various languages, cultural norms, politics, religions, and professional and personal relationships that allows me to travel in each country with relative ease.

3. I'm able to reinvent myself continuously. Not that my personal identity changes, but that I realize certain situations call for different ways of speaking, acting, or dressing.
