I’m an international student in the Business Administration program at Red River College. I truly believe in continuous education and studying in Canada is one of my personal goals to upgrade my professional skillset.
For over 15 years, I have been working as a Supply Chain professional, filling positions all over the organizational chart, from Production Planner to Supply Chain Manager in companies such as Mabe, GE, Legrand, and Apex Tool Group, allowing me to understand the importance of networking in this very dynamic modern world. I believe that commitment, responsibility, and integrity, together with this new experience in Canada will bring me even better opportunities.
I firmly think that “Directions: Finding My Place” is an excellent opportunity, as college students, to enrich our experience by meeting and interacting with industry leaders and career professionals, all at one single event.
