Personal Statement

Money… it’s green and it makes the world go around. I've learned at an early age that if I work hard and am willing to do anything, I can make money. I've realized that making money comes with hard work, and I have had some experience with that. When my dad still had his business open I used to go work and wash houses with him. I have also learned that when dealing with customers I might have to speak a different language to communicate with them, so I am currently learning Spanish. Being a hands on person it allows me to complete many tasks from helping my dad wash houses to typing essays for school. Some of the tools I use really well are Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publish, Note, Excel, Paint, and Activinspire. I am a quick learner and I am willing to help anyone I can.
