I AM JENNI ALAVA
I am a social and positive nature and culture enthusiast. I love art and design, and I'm a very visual person.
My sharp eye for visual elements and attention to detail extends to my strong and positive communication skills online and face-to-face.
My experience consists of customer service and selling, combined with solid knowledge of online trade and digital marketing. I am skilled in fashion design process and production management, but also brand developing and presenting. I have excellent knowledge on e-commerce and social media.
