I have very little work experience. Well, I did have a training course in a company but that was part of my studies. And even before that I had a few months' experience as a commercial assistant which obviously had nothing to do with my career. I have a degree in computer science engineering from the University of Seville. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish and English. I also have a B2 certification in English from the Language Institute of Seville University. I'm self disciplined, hardworking and creative. Hiking, swimming, running and fitness are my hobbies.

However I am a teacher, I want to be a civil servant in Ministry of Foreign Affairs Myanmar. So, I learn English very hard to get this position.
