Studying English and Drama at the University of Exeter; my degree is analytical and creative whilst encouraging interpersonal skills, public speaking and innovative thought. I’ve really enjoyed throwing myself into my extra-curricular activities, and believe that through my experience in theatre I have developed a key understanding in what it takes to lead and work collectively on a project from the initial stages to the final production. Finding a balance between my extra commitments and academic work has proved a challenge, but I thrive on being busy and believe that I work well under pressure. I am looking for a career in Account Management, Marketing or PR in order to further the develop the skills that I have obtained during my degree and extra-curricular activities.
