I am an experienced, enthusiastic person who is eager to learn. I am currently in Canada and have a work permit which I sort out myself. I am hungry for continuous improvement and thrive on new challenges. I am currently finishing my Master’s Degree MA in Sports coaching. I wish to work for a leader in the sports industry, and am determined to make a career in my passion which is football. While I am an avid coach, I have skills which are transferable to business and other aspects of the industry which I have learned through work experience as well as formal education. I intend on beginning my UEFA A License in June 2019. I am interested in the world of sports in general, and am an avid reader on topics such as sports leadership and the revolution of statistical analysis in sports. I have read extensively in these areas, as well as the area of emotional intelligence and psychology, which have been useful tools in my own personal development. I also enjoy reading on philosophy, particularly on coaching philosophy and how our values and beliefs can improve coaching practice.
