Looks good to me.
Only thing I'd change is instead of saying "in this role" multiple times, just switch the wording so it becomes a bit more interesting for an emplyer


PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

Hello Justin! I hope this is okay for you. I didn't edit much, and I only fixed the spellings and the punctuations. I think you can use more commas "," and full stops "." in your writing! It was well written in my opinion, though if you wish I can try to check with the grammars and other things.

Do my best at everything I can to live a happy, perfect life.

Happy life won't come by being happy everyday. Struggle and always work hard.

Forgive other's imperfection, they will work hard about it once I point it out to them, just like what I should be doing.

On the other hand, never tolerate with my own mediocrity. Never slack and always strive improvement.

Never settle. Never give up.

Hey there Justin,
Something I found that no one had mentioned yet was

Quote:
I'm very clear communicate across various levels including video calls, conference calls, emails.
Maybe you can say "I am very clear with communication" or "I communicate very clearly" or "I have very clear communication (skills)"

You said you dont need help with anything besides spelling but I wanted to mention something based on what Tort said. One thing you can do for employnent history is make bullet points for the job description. That's what I was told to do when I had my resume looked over. As Tort mentioned, the phrase "in this role I..." is repetitive. So what you can do is take that part out and make bullet points instead. But if you want to keep it in paragraph form that's okay too and I personally don't think the repition is bad. There's many ways to format a resume, it is really up to you. I hope that makes sense.

Just to show an example of what I mean, take this for example

Quote:
In this role I worked on the checkouts my responsibilities in this role were cash handling, supervising other till members and taking part in till training staff, checking customers Identification, providing a high level of customer service in a fast paced environment. During my time in this role I also was trained to work on the shop floor and and refill stock
.

*Worked on the checkouts, cash handled
*supervised other till members
*took part in till training staff
*checked customers Identification
*provided a high level of customer service in a fast paced environment.
* trained and worked on the shop floor and refill stock.

The verbs are changed to past tense becsuse you worked there in the past but if you are currently working or volunteering and wanted to do it in this format you would make it in present tense

Oh wait I see that this job in particular is current so it would be in present tense, so just drop the -ed from every verb
