Personal Summary


I submit this post with the intention to enter the non-profit sector. My past experience has been in leadership within consumer goods sales and beauty customer service. I have worn many hats in my career, but developing talent is my strongest suit. While I have enjoyed the success of exceeding KPI expectations and other metrics, I feel most engaged when tasked with a research project or when I am coaching / motivating my team. When conducting research, I am resourceful, organized, thorough.

Although I appreciate the success in my career in sales and beauty, I would like move toward a position that is in alignment with my concern for postwar devastation. As a child of war myself, my areas of interest are with displaced refugees and migrants, veterans, economic reconstruction, disarmament, and the psychological trauma of war.

I hope that my resume and background is a mutual match. Above all else (salary, time, travel, etc), my principal objective is that the organization share my passion and is willing to support my growth as a budding humanitarian. I can be reached at 917 282 3973 or fujimotomar@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,
