The Upcoming

Jun 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I am currently working as a Freelance Content Writer for London culture magazine, The Upcoming where I am responsible for writing high-quality feature-length articles and reviews on various cultural topics such as film, theatre and art. Working Freelance at the Upcoming means I have the ability to work for long and extended hours, and I have shown a promptness and dedication to work on very short notice. I have gained an abundance of skills and knowledge in not only content writing in general, but particularly in the field of art and culture.

2016

English Language Instructor

Babylangues

Jan 2016 - Aug 2016
  • Paris, France
  • Full Time
  • I worked as an English Language Instructor in Paris, where I was responsible for taking on small groups of children and teaching them English. I engaged students through not only Babylangues resources but also through my own activities which were designed to achieve maximum interaction in small groups. In doing so I achieved optimal results by breaking down large learning tasks into manageable segments and by developing activities appropriate to students' learning abilities and ages. I built rapport with students and created a trusting atmosphere through sensitivity to students' strengths, weaknesses and personal learning styles, whilst working almost entirely in French.

2014

Receptionist

Les Portes du Roussillon

Jun 2014 - Aug 2014
  • Perpignan, France
  • Full Time
  • I worked as a receptionist at a busy French beach resort where I was responsible for providing travel advice and knowledge to customers and dealing with a wide range of customer issues. I was additionally responsible for opening and closing the office and for handling large sums of money. I gained a lot of experience in administrative tasks such as operating the switchboard, answering email and creating spreadsheets. Whilst I was working within such a high pressure environment I did so entirely in French, advancing my language skills dramatically.

Education

2016

Reunionnais Literature , French Literature and French Language

Université de La Réunion

Aug 2015 - Jan 2016
  • Reunion
  • I spent the first semester of my third year abroad at Université de La Réunion, where I took a wide range of subjects including: Contemporary History, Linguistics, Art History and Reunionnais Créole.

2017

BA English Literature and French

Queen Mary University of London

Sep 2013 - Jul 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Throughout my University curriculum I frequently chose modules focussing on Victorian Literature and the visual arts. My 10,000-word dissertation was also art-based, and allowed me to garner an abundance of knowledge in art’s role in literature in the 19th century. I aimed to demonstrate if and how the Victorian woman artist in Victorian literature could achieve artistic professionalism in the 19th century; with particular focus on what it meant to be a ‘professional’ artist and how the woman artist was perceived in Victorian Fiction.
