About me

 

I am somebody who is constantly trying to learn and develop not only on a professional level but also as a member of society. I enjoy teaching myself through various techniques from documentaries to joining adult learning courses to travelling. My recent career gap is due to travelling solo around South East Asia. I am hoping to take my career in a new direction to something more creative. I would love to get involved with advertising and marketing especially for campaigns for climate and environmental issues. I am interested in how our behaviours now from diet to use of fossil fuels are damaging the planets and would be humbled to one day be a part of a team who makes a change. I am a team player however I also have good management skills and can work exceptionally well individually. I would say I am a liberal woman who strives to bring equal opportunities to all those I work and interact with.
