Preet is available for work

I was raised in the 90s to two immigrant parents, whose sole purpose was to educate their three children and give them the understanding that anything is possible, fast-forward to college I always loved Art, Music, and Fashion but my mom thought me becoming a Nurse would be the best, she could see I wasn't happy once I completed nursing, so she asked me what I wanted to do? Told her something in fashion, if you take a look at my resume it's mostly some sort of fashion with my new adventure food/beverages thought I needed a challenge, back in Dec 2022 I was in Paris for three weeks, and I keep bringing myself back to Paris .. come Nov 2022 -Jan 2023 I will be exploring Paris yet again and hope to find a Job so I can make Paris my new home, so I came across Dweet , and thought I would make a profile and see where it takes me, I'm a well rounded friendly person that loves a good challenge, My stories are endless if you want to hear more I would love to sit down over a cup of coffee, in the meantime stay fancy>
