“When I was younger, one of my passions was team sports and social activities/clubs. I found them really engaging and fun as they allow you to communicate with a broader range of people and to empathise more with them better. Having that motivation to communicate with others in different ways helps me work well in a team, when dealing with clients, and has enhanced my relationship management skills.”
