About me

 

As a graduate from Newcastle University with a BA honours degree in Music, I intend to pursue a career within the music and creative industry. The skills I have developed have given me the confidence to take up challenges in roles that range throughout the creative spectrum from production, interpersonal, entrepreneurial, analytical and marketing skills. I enjoy working with people and feel comfortable communicating ideas to encourage good morale, enthusiasm and motivation within teams to generate positive results. My strengths have been demonstrated as strong communicator with good organisational skills, and versatile creative thinking. With these attributes I have produced positive results for various events such as arts and music festivals, and for companies through social media, marketing and PR campaigns. Having had responsibilities as a leader, I enjoy working with people and feel comfortable communicating ideas to encourage good morale, enthusiasm and motivation within teams. My work experience shadowing a barrister gave me insight into the importance of being focused when working under timely pressure and the essential skill of communication and presentation, focusing on language, interpretation and critical analysis. My performance skills as a musician and actor have given me great confidence in presentation and audience engagement, which I believe is an asset and essential to the creative industry. I feel I have much to offer to the creative industry and I could apply my skills well to the field.
