Confidential P *



Jayna Patel is a friendly person willing to learn and grow. I take on a challenge to explore my capabilities. Learning excites and motivates me. I started as a receptionist at Absa but was always willing to assist and explore different avenues and therefore worked my way up from receptionist to a consultant. During my school years I was the secretary of the youth group arranging various projects to our community. In my spare time I enjoy drawing and reading. I love reading magazines on travel and new inventions.
