Being a personal trainer taught me a lot of valuable skills. The first would be leadership. Being in charge of a number of clients whom I had to do research on their individual backgrounds and goals taught me how to stay accountable. In order for me to coach them properly, I would then have to communicate with them what was realistic and also stay up to date on their progress, and mental well-being. Not only did it make me relentless but it taught me about having an entrepreneurial mindset.

Working at Temple Parking Services taught me a lot of valuable skills. The first would be how to document and organize, which I learned from staying up to date with paperwork, permits, and citations for hundreds and thousands of students. Interacting with different levels of authority such as politicians, executives, directors, professors also taught me a lot about professionalism and to always have the best image.
