About me

 

I am currently a graduant at the University of Exeter, studying French and German with Spanish and will graduate with First Class (Hons) with Distinction in Spoken French. Having been a regular contributor to the student newspaper on a variety of themes, I aim to work in journalism, media and/or travel after graduation - especially reviews, criticism and opinion columnism - as well as continuing to expand my professional circle. I am a personable, driven and ambitious candidate and as a linguist, possess excellent analytic, communicative and interpersonal skills. I also have a large penchant for Jaffa Cakes. Examples of my writing can be found at: theconnorsseur.wordpress.com
