As a person who has been teaching at a university for a number of years, I am often asked to write recommendations and or personal references for former students. It is rare that I am excited about this task. This is not the case with Fion Chong, however. In fact, I could not be happier to write a letter on the behalf of Fion. She is a remarkable woman, as is evidenced my all the activities detailed in her resume. Fion possesses all the characteristics one would want from someone who is working with you. She is hardworking, self directed and motivated, a quick learner, willing to undertake any task, can work under pressure, works well with others, and stays until the work is finished. I know all of this because my role as a mentor to her over the years. She is also honest and trustworthy.
When she was my student, and since she graduated, Fion frequently stopped by my office to visit, find out latest books to read, and basically chat about her career and her goals. She has had an amazing career working with multiple companies and I am very proud of all she has accomplished and is accomplishing.
In closing, it should be quite clear that highly recommend that Fion receive a gaming license so that she may work with you. She will be terrific and you will be very happy to have her on your team. She will do everything required to ensure the success of her projects. If you have any questions or would like to talk to me personally about Fion, please do not hesitate to write or call. My contact information is below. I am currently traveling without access to a printer, so I have asked my executive assistant Darlene Girouard to sign and mail this letter on my behalf. I I will resend the letter under my own signature on Tuesday, July 9th 2019.
