About me

 

I am a self-motivated and ambitious individual with strong communication and organisational skills. I was awarded First Class Honours for a BA in Classics from Christ's College, University of Cambridge in June 2013 and I have recently completed a one-year Management Studies course at the Judge Business School, also in Cambridge. I have a strong interest in business development & innovation, strategy and marketing, and am currently looking for new opportunities to gain experience in these areas.
