Lecturer, MBA, MA, BA
Academic Affairs Office (AAO)

Academic Affairs Manager

In life, people search for their path and sometimes if they work hard enough and look long enough, they will find it.   The path of my life so far has been earning my living as a lecturer and sharing my opportunities with the community.  I graduated in my Master programs and already started a long career in teaching:  English, Change Leadership,  IT Business Analyst, and Hospital Management. I plan on working in the field of management and on teaching for the remainder of my life. To me, teaching and managing are not separate jobs. They both are a way of life.
