About me

I’m a trusty, eager to learn and a hardworking person with creative thinking skills, which I personally feel is a substantial mindset for any environment. Studying a computing degree goes hand in hand with having advanced computer and technological skills. Fashion and Beauty is one of my keen interests, I have a sense of style and full personality alongside great brand knowledge and trends. Having completed a Fashion design course through LCCA, I gained the insight on how the fashion industry is run and how designers bring their designs and collections to life. Additionally, having completed a makeup course I am confidently able to apply makeup on other individuals thus revealing my artistic skills. As well as that, I am multi-lingual, with the ability to speak fluent English and Urdu. Throughout my years in school I have been part of the student council, prefect, and the anti-bullying council, through engaging in those extra tasks it aided me to work in a team allowing me to understand the importance of commitment as well as giving me the drive to work on my own initiative and alongside other people, it also enhanced by listening, organisation and time management skills.
