About Myself I matriculated from Westham Secondary School in 1990, obtaining my matriculation exemption. I studied electrical engineering and industrial electronics to pick up a trade but reaching my N3 in these studies was more of a hindrance than an assist as I could not obtain an apprenticeship but on reaching too high a standard. I did not feel that that was the end of my rope, though and decided to start at the bottom as a normal operator in a company called Michelle Footwear. I did not believe for a second that that was my calling and did not hesitate to apply myself to grow within that company. Starting as a normal operator, I wrote the relevant assessment tests for vacancies within the company and was immediately recognized as a candidate with massive potential. I moved up within the company as a planner and was further promoted into the I.T. department. At that time, I knew absolutely nothing about the I. T. environment as was told that I have a month to either make it or I was out. That did not deter me and I grasped the opportunity with both hands. I started as a software tester and never looked back. As time progressed, I was put in charge of all of the software being created, modified, and being used. I offered software support for fifty users, dealing with any queries, enhancements, and various bug fixes. After working at Michelle Footwear for fourteen years, I realized that there was no more room for growth and decided to try my hand at another career. I relocated to Johannesburg to try my hand in the hospitality industry. I worked at a hotel called the Holiday Inn Sandton. It was a new and exciting experience. I took on the role of assistant housekeeper and performed a whole set of duties (as listed within my work experience). During this period, I always felt that I was being under used and when I was offered a position at Albertina Bay Technologies, in Durban, being homesick and wanting a challenge, I jumped at that opportunity. I started at Albertina Bay Technologies in 2009 and am currently employed here. I was employed as a software tester but have since created stored procedure in SQL 2005, developed reports and applications within Access 2003 and 2007 and even dabbled in reporting services. While I appreciate my position here at Albertina Bay, I do not feel that this is home. I feel that my heart is somewhere else and that may be with you. What I should also mention, which is of great importance, is that my credit history is not healthy. During my younger years, I created a huge financial hole that I could not get out off and after consulting with a few financial debtors, it became obvious to me that my best solution was to sequestrate myself, which I was successful in doing. I currently pay my trustees to clear my debts. This was necessary to ensure that at some stage I get some financial stability. It must be mentioned that while I am currently sequestrated, I am honest, loyal, and always carry myself as a role member for others. I do not believe in theft, dishonesty, and any acts of discrimination against others as I always believe there is a higher power and our judgement is reserved. I have total faith in my abilities and have never known failure, irrespective of what challenge lies ahead.
