Quick Fire Questions

  • Footprint Time Capsule Item:A picture of the team working from home (to remind me of when I hadn't met anyone in the team in person)
  • First Job: When I was 16 I started working at Oasis as a Sales Advisor. It was a great place to work and I got discount in store!

  • New Item for Office: A photo of the entire team together
  • Best Trip: 2 years ago, my family and I went on a trip to the US. We went to NYC, Orlando and Miami. We were a group of 13 (parents, siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles) going to all the touristic places, learning about the culture and going to all the rollercoasters at Disney and Universal. We were always late for everything because we were so many but it was so much fun to share such an amazing experience with each other.
