  1. I am a very hardworking, determined, punctual and Reliable person whose only aim in life is to make a success off everything I do no matter what it is. I did my NQF4 Human Resource Management. I worked for Finbond Mutual Bank for 2years.

    I do not have any children yet and i am not married yet so there wont be any difficulties if I must work overtime at times.

    I am not from Cape Town so I do not know alot of friends and people here. I stay with my pensioner aunt and I must also contribute seen as she only receives her SASSA income. I came to Cape Town for better job life and a more stable financial job seen as life is expensive and I must live everyday here.

    Warm Regards
