About me

Driven, Motivated and Qualified!

Hello, my name is Gustaf Smith.

I am an 24 year old guy who currently live and work in Uppsala, Sweden.

I travel a lot both in my job and on my spare time and I actually enjoy to commute.

I am a graduated economist at the secondary level. I have been working with sales and customer service throughout my whole career, something which I am very passionate about. Some of the most exciting things in this area is the ability to learn and grow, through the meeting with new people. I love when I can share my own experience with other people and inspire them to learn and discover new perspectives themselves.

Technology and Social Media have really changed the way we interact with other people. My belief is that we can actually call social media our new primary world. Both technology and Social Media are fields which facinates me and something that has always been a very important part of my living. I have good knowledge in the subjects and I am sure that it is very important to understand the new era of advertising among the social media generation.

I also believe that being social, accommodating and give good service are some of the most important things in business, so I am very pleased about the fact that I am often told that I possess these qualities. I see myself as a very social and outgoing person and I love to take on new challenges and to learn new things.

This work has given me great experience in a lot of different areas, especially in sales, management and leadership.
