    Please allow this letter to serve as an inquiry for the available project you are looking to get accomplished. My experience as a writer, lecturer and research analyst make me confident of being the perfect candidate to help you achieve exactly what you are looking for. I have acquired an MSc. in Business Management degree from the renowned university “The University of Sheffield”. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Rochester Institute of Technology in Applied Arts and Science (concentrations in Business Management, Economics and Statistics). During the course of my studies I have gained knowledge in many different areas such as management skills, economic environment, interpersonal communication and leadership. Furthermore, studies in Human Resources and Accounting for Managers have given me strong base for the respective fields. Attending various conferences and programs on energy, startup business and democracy related issues, has expanded my horizon of understanding the domestic environment as well as being aware of what is going on in the region and around the world. My experience of working as a project coordinator for MDA(Management Development Associates www.seemda.com). has equipped me with a strong base in managing various tasks including facilitating focus groups for strategy development and the preparations of financial reports. Currently I teach management classes at a private college. Besides teaching I am also the head of the library where I lead a team of 3 professionals in managing the library, sorting, updating new issues etc. If given the opportunity I am eager to discuss my potential contribution to your project.  less
