As a volunteer for the Malawi-based charity, Love Support Unite (LSU), I am responsible for harnessing donations via the sale of LSU’s Love Specs sunglasses. Consistently demonstrating my enthusiasm, knowledge and care for the cause, last summer I worked in a team of eight and helped raise over £3000 across a single weekend event.
As a member of the rooftop bar and events team, I am responsible for greeting and attending to clients booked in for evening and daytime events. This work involves narrow turnarounds between scheduled meetings, work events and weddings, and acute attention to SOPs whilst assuring smooth turnovers. Interacting directly with clients, I understand the importance of ensuring friendly conduct, approachability and professionalism when catering across both larger corporate and more intimate parties.
I was responsible for showing prospective students around campus, giving guided tours and answering questions about student life. Coordinating my tours according to specific itineraries given by the university, I demonstrated punctuality and competence managing upwards of fifteen visitors at a time.
I worked on festival sites, assisting with the coordination of kit delivery and stock. Ensuring that decorations and tent design met safety standards before and throughout events, I am acutely aware of health and safety requirements in large events spaces
I worked as the face of the brand throughout various family events and in public spaces, and was regularly responsible for transporting all kit to and from sites. Required to set up marquees and brand spaces upon arrival to locations, I exercised good time management and am capable of working independently.
I completed a week-long intensive course teaching the fundamentals of softwares native to Adobe Creative Cloud.
University of California Education Abroad Program As part of my undergraduate programme at University College London, I was accepted to complete one full academic year at UC Berkeley. Whilst abroad, I diversified my academic scope and technical skills through a range of classes, consistently maintaining A grades throughout. I simultaneously broadened my understanding of world politics, as detailed in a year-long academic blog awarded first class marks by University College London.
My degree predominantly focused on Human Geography. It involved large amounts of research, group work and independent study. These attributes demanded a high level of organisation and an ability to coordinate with others.
