As this was my first professional workplace, I was quite nervous before I started. Fortunately, the culture and people quickly made that change. Together, they've made work easy, enjoyable, and really rewarding.

Since joining The Smart Cube in 2017, I've been given numerous opportunities to grow and improve my capabilities. In turn, that's helped me quickly rise through the ranks - from Research Analyst to Assistant Manager. I'm very thankful for the progression opportunities I've been given, and i'm truly proud to be a part of this amazing team.
