All my work experiences have involved working within a team-based culture. This called for planning, organization, co-ordination and commitment, in addition to patience.
Planning and organization
My biggest test of organization was completing my dissertation. It took me months of in-depth research, compressing information and finally displaying it to a standard I was happy with.
Research and presentation
During seminars and project papers throughout the university education, I developed the skill of researching on various topics and presenting to fellow course mates.
I attended various departmental seminars and PhD proposal defense and gained a lot of insights from such exposure.
I completed 10 (ten) computer packages and I am now proficient in all aspects of Microsoft Windows and Office including Word, Excel, Access and Power Point.
PhD RESEARCH PROPOSAL
I have been admitted in the department of Linguistics and Languages for a degree leading to a Doctor of Philosophy in Linguistics. A PhD research proposal was one of the basic requirements for the admission.
