have always challenged myself with difficult courses, multiple jobs, and strived to be as self-sufficient as possible
Work ethic
always trying to do my best, as it reflects on me and on the business, especially true for my time spent at Helsinki
Time management/prioritizing
balanced jobs with school and decisions made at the jobs themselves, especially Helsinki, often have to be made quickly but with care
Customer service/people skills
definitely something that you pick up working in food, whether someone complains about the food when you go to clear their plate or is giving you a hard time on the phone
