Dare to try. I like diversity and immagination. What happens next. With a B.V.A. Degree I do not get away from paper work. I am also a Registered nurse.(General, Psychiatric,Mental Retardation and hold certificates in Immunization and Management. I like to interact with people across all mediums.My favourite places are Paris and New Orleans.(and Australia)
