Alejandro G. Carlstein Ramos Mejia
The main purpose of this blog is for me to return to the society the education and help that was given to me. Many posts in this blog are answers to questions I was given; as well as, things I wish to share with everyone.
US citizen, lived in Argentina since very young, I returned to the United States of America so I could know more about my country and continue my education. When searching for a company, I am looking to be part of an organization where I can contribute as a dedicated and reliable team member, while continuing to learn and grow professionally.
