About me

Dedicated, eager and incredibly hardworking B(Sc) Psychology graduate. Well accustomed to the managing multiple projects, volunteering positions and work simultaneously, whilst meeting my responsibilities to a consistently exceptional standard. In university, I undertook two yearlong group research projects and studied social interaction on an individual and group level. Thus, my communicative, written, research and interpersonal skills are extremely highly developed. From developing new therapies for Parkinson’s sufferers in my thesis, altering the criteria by which assignments are marked in my University, introducing seminars for first and second year students, establishing a peer mentoring system within my faculty in University, taking over visual merchandising in my place of work and training new recruits; I am constantly on the lookout for ways to improve my work and the service I provide for others.
