Customer Service Specialist

  Taoyuan City, Taiwan

After spending years as a part-time volunteer supporting start-ups in Thailand and advocating for youth mental health in the Philippines, I am now looking to resume a full-time professional career in customer service. Highly motivated and experienced, I am currently seeking to be part of an organization where I can share my passion for turning challenges into opportunities to learn, to contribute further success to the organization, and to achieve expectations, if not beyond.
