Volunteer Profile

August, 1991
I would describe myself as a very determined and highly motivated person. I do take my job seriously but I’m able to see things in perspective and believe I’m quite easy-going to work with. I’m an optimist rather than a pessimist – but I’m also a realist and I cope well when the going gets tough; I’m very good at finding solutions to problems. Above all, I would say I’m a positive and enthusiastic person – and I relish a challenge. i have maintained the firm record of conducting the tasks such as researches, advocacy and performing the duties of administration and finance both in emergency phases and development projects. I have closely worked with International government counterparts, like Coffey International, UNOPS and with UNDP.
