BIBLIOGRAPHY

I am a very hardworking and determined professional, with the desire to excel in everything that I do. I obtained a National Diploma in Public Relations through UNISA in 2015, and I have a stable work record since 2012. Thus, having gained both stable work experience as well as academic knowledge. I believe that I am well equipped with the necessary tools to make an exceptional contribution, should I receive the opportunity. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors with my family and a hobby of mine is partaking in Judo in which I received my WP colours. I am currently a stay at home mom, who is ready to take on the corporate world. I have my own vehicle as well as a valid code 08 diver’s license.
