About me

I am currently a International Business Masters student at Hult International Business School in London. I graduated with a 2:1 BA Honours Business degree in summer 2016 after 3 years of intense study and personal development. I also spent over one year working for a reopened retail company that was taken over by a new company. The during a year I took on great challenges both in terms of hard and soft skills. I have a huge passion for travel and have the opportunity to study in both New York and San Francisco. I have previously lived and was briefly educated in Canada for a year. I have devoted much of my time towards horses in particular showjumping where I have represented Ulster on several occasions. This has taught me how to be disciplined as it is a huge commitment and very time consuming. Being able to juggle my academic, working, equestrian and social life has given me the ability to work under pressure as well as prioritise. I will finish my current studies in August 2017, and would like to take on a challenging but rewarding role in consulting, operations or marketing. Such roles would give me a chance to express my energy, determination, knowledge and creativity, while learning from companies and growing as a person.
