It was a useful topic, thanks .

Permit me begin by thanking you for this lesson. It is inspiring and motivating. As an assistant to a Chairman, I face challenges of various types. First as a young woman, secondly as the assistant to the chairman and last but not the least as an individual with a competence that overpowers the job I currently undertake. In the first case, I am a young woman who respects herself and thus respect others. If at any point in a relationship I feel uneasy, I will simply withdraw politely. In the second case, everyday I thrive to meet up with the expectations and go beyond. In the last case, I created a sphere were I mingle my background in international communication and public action with my job as assistant to the chairman to create a greater impact. It is not always an easy task but I do my optimum best everyday. Thanks again for this lesson.

Thank you once more. I like this lesson very much. And I enjoy British English.
