About me

 

I am an energetic, enthusiastic, friendly and committed individual who likes to work hard and enjoy what I do. I recently graduated from Newcastle University, achieving a 2.1 in History. Whilst at university I developed excellent research, writing and communication skills, which I could transfer to various professions. I am currently working as a Trade Assistant and Sales Executive at a leading furniture company. I have a positive, 'can - do' attitude and I'm eager to embrace a new challenge. With my skills and experience, I believe I could adapt to a new role quickly and successfully. I am keen to pursue a career in the creative sector and my interest developed whilst I was a Marketing and Events Manager at Bounce, Newcastle.

Education

History

Newcastle University

Nov 2014 - Nov 2014
  • I was a dedicated student, achieving a 2.1. in History. My course required me to research, collect and analyse historical topics to produce essays, which greatly improved my writing ability. One of my favourite projects at university was when I had to plan an exhibition. This allowed me to explore my creative instincts by using music, artwork and literary sources to present the global impact of Rastafarianism.
