Before starting my career in Marketing, I spent a year in Human Resources Management. I know I have an outgoing personality with strong creative thinking. Thus, I decided to try something which requires more human interaction. I worked in-house for a luxury fashion brand before moving to a hotel and have gained exposure in Public Relations, Events, Advertising and e-Commerce. Now, I work as a Marketing Manager in a SME producing and sourcing corporate and promotional gifts because I want to keep exploring Marketing.

Current Position:   Audit Department, KPMG

I have secured an offer from KPMG Hong Kong and will start in the Audit Department.
