About me

Current undergraduate at the University of Kent studying Politics (BA). Looking for a current opportunity to help utilise my management, creativity and communication skills in a field I am interested in; but also further develop these skills in the ever changing and fast paced environment of work. Looking to gain entry-level media experience where creative initiative, ideas and a genuine enthusiasm would allow me to progress. My career goal is to become an editor of a national news publication and write stories about current affairs. I would like to believe that I would contribute and develop the success of the business that I would work for, through my initiative to work hard and my passion for news writing. My teamwork skills, built through my education and my hobbies such as school newspaper and sport, makes me an excellent candidate to work with and maintain a positive relationship invaluable in any workplace.
