About me
I graduated from the University of Manchester, achieving 2:1 in my Fashion Marketing Degree. I am a people person with strong spoken and written communication skills. These skills were honed when working in press and PR, writing multiple releases a week, selling into journalists and writing interviews. In addition, I attained solid organisational skills and learnt the importance of a deadline when assisting with creative events. Fashion has always inspired my creativity; I have CAD skills from designing fashion pages and running social media for an independent brand.

    Financial DirectorPanda
     - Manchester, United KingdomPart Time
    ● In the final year of my degree, I ran a brand with five other people. ● We created reusable makeup remover pads out of Bamboo cotton, I was the financial director. This meant I had to teach myself how to effectively budget, create pricing strategies, completing profit and loss tables and cash flow forecasts. ● Panda taught me the most about teamwork and leadership, as when any problem arose we had to solve it together. ● Further working at various stalls during retail events, selling one to one to customers improved my sales and customer relation skills.
