Andrea Graffe Suárez

I am looking for the opportunity to give my everything!

Andrea's bio

When I want something I work my hardest to achieve it, and do not stop until I do.

I have always been very independent and determined, which drove me to go abroad alone by myself to improve my English proficiency at 14, and to leave home when I was only 17 to pursue my career dreams. In the process I learned 3 languages, travelled Europe and became comfortable working in multi-cultural environments.

I am honest, efficient, enthusiastic, incredibly energetic and willing to go miles in order to accomplish goals and go beyond expectations.

My promise to you? My full commitment and all the miles you need to surpass your goals.
