About me: I always enjoy interacting with people which is why I studied Psychology in Royal Holloway and worked in recruitment since then. Having a chance to use my native language in my day to day job in Euro London makes recruitment even more fulfilling! During the weekends, I love exploring new baking recipes, and pestering people to try them.
